В"I hope I will eventually manage to interrupt an unpleasant tradition and I will be able to win a medal in CairoвЂќ, a three-times judo champion of Europe Elchin Ismaylov told Trend on the eve of the judo world championship start.
He noted he is tuning himself particularly for the forthcoming contest, at which his successful performance will be especially significant.
В"Sometimes at the mundial I gave in to such rivals, which were defeated by me without any problems at the continentвЂ™s championship.
However, now I am full of power to prove by all means, that victory at the вЂњEuropeвЂќ may be continued also at the world championshipвЂќ, Ismaylov stressed. To his mind, the main rivals will be the Japanese, which traditionally dominate in judo.
