Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend corr Z. Safarov / An Azerbaijani musical composition hopes to become the official anthem of the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF).

The Executive Board of WTF reported that Korea, France, Croatia, Vietnam, Britain and Azerbaijan sent their musical compositions to high-ranking officials for their consideration. The author of the Azerbaijani composition is the first vice-president of the Azerbaijani National Federation, Fizuli Musayev. The anthem has been translated into English especially for WTF. It was composed several years ago and used at all the large-scale taekwondo events held in Azerbaijan. The deadline for receiving compositions expired three months ago. The organization will sum them up soon.
