Flag bearer: MAMMADOV (AZE)

Quotes from Azerbaijan flag bearer Teymur MAMMADOV before the Baku 2015 European Games Closing Ceremony at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday.


On being a flag bearer:

"I am proud to be the flag bearer. I didn't expect to have this honour. I expected to get a gold medal (in boxing) because I trained hard, but I didn't expect to have the flag honour. "

"The best thing for me is the award (of the medal) by the president, even more than taking the gold medal. It was the most memorable part of this Games for me."
