First National title in 2004
My childhood was spent in a very difficult time. I was born in the Karabakh town of Fizuli. The whole family had to move to Baku and to work to survive. Since my childhood my mother said I'd be famous. After the end of the war, in 2000 before the Sydney Olympics, Heydar Aliyev met with the Olympic national team of Azerbaijan. I saw this on TV and decided to do sports. In 2000, I started to play sports, and tried several kinds. But thanks to my brother and my coach Asif Gasanov, I became a multiple champion in my country, the winner of international races, and a competitor in World and European Championships.
