An interview with Vice President of Taekwondo Federation, Niyamaddin Pashayev.
Right now Taekwondo federation is on friendly competition. Our team consists of 8 female and 8 male athletes. However, we are a little bit concerned about 2 of our heavyweight female athletes who’ve got injured recently.
Our athletes are training under medical supervision. They train in the building of Taekwondo federation and stay in Qafqaz Hotel. We also pay attention to their diet. Our coaching staff consists of the head coach of our team Rashad Akhmadov, men team coach Reza Mehmandoust and women team coach Elnur Salmanov.
We will participate in a couple of sporting events before Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games and we are now preparing for them.
We believe in our athletes, they are in good physical and mental shape.
