Video Interview with Rafael Aghayev

10 March 2017

I choose “Respect” out of 4 principles of Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games. This principle was passed to me from my parents. I am 31 year old, and even now when my father enters the room I stand up. That’s one of the examples of respect our parents taught us.

It is a great honor to me to be an ambassador of Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games. My hard work, struggles, family and nation stand behind my victories. This programme allows me to give back the energy and support to my nation.

Everyone expects gold medals from athletes. It will not be easy, because we will face the strongest opponents in our kind of sport but we will do whatever we can to show the best results.
