Georgia, Tbilisi, Aug.15 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
Georgia has champions, silver and bronze medallists of the Olympic Games, and there is also a champion in jumping out of a window, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said today in the resort town of Anaklia at a meeting with the Georgian Olympians.
Thus, he hinted at the judoist Bektila Shukvani, who accused the heads of the delegation that they did not protect his interests. He also said that since he is a supporter of the opposition coalition "Georgia Dream", and wanted to dedicate the gold medal to Bidzina Ivanishvili, he was persecuted and was forced to jump out of a hotel window and leave London for Tbilisi.
Saakashvili said he is proud of Olympic athletes, as they showed heroism and won seven medals for the country, which has been never observed in the past. "We are smaller people and it is a great achievement," he said.
