Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

At the age of 15 I earned the right to represent my country at the international level. So far, I managed to return with medals from all of the international competitions I have taken part in. The most important and spectacular competition in my life was the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China. I won the bronze medal there and thus became the first sportsman in the history of independent Azerbaijan to win a medal in athletics. My dream is to win the gold medal, raise the Azerbaijani flag and hear the Azerbaijani anthem playing at the European Games that will be held in Baku, and then represent Azerbaijan in Rio 2016.
