WE ASKED ROVSHAN…

What was one of your best games or competitions and why?

The Olympic Games. Because every athlete wishes to participate and win a medal in the Olympics. I’ve participated twice in the Olympics and competed in the final at both.

Who is an idol in your life?

Olympic champion in Greek-Roman wrestling and two-time World champion Farid Mansurov. Farid is my idol both as a person and as a wrestler.

If you were not a professional athlete, where would you be now?

I like painting. If I wasn’t a wrestler, I’d be a painter.

What is satisfying about your sport?

Every athlete’s wish is to win medals at competitions after strained training sessions. It’s the same for me. Achieving a result, winning a medal in a competition I take part makes me happy.
