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

Yashar's interest in wrestling is thanks to his father, who was a freestyle wrestler. But his aim was to achieve more than his father did and become a worldwide freestyle wrestler. His main goal is to get a gold medal at the European Games, which will guarantee his participation at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
