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

I was a very active and sometimes naughty child and that's why my parents decided that I should go in for sports. At the age of 12, my cousin took me to a wrestling club and my successes encouraged me to continue competing. Farid Mansurov and Rovshan Bayramov are my favourite athletes. Apart from wrestling, I am also interested in gymnastics and weightlifting. I have shoulder and back injuries that show themselves in very hard moments. My goal is to achieve high results and raise the Azerbaijani flag.
