In Budapest (Hungary) the European championship in judo among juniors and juniors under 23 has come to the end. Almost 300 strongest athletes in eight teams competed for medals in individual and team events. Team competitions were held for the first time in the history of European judo. The Russian national team became the silver medalist of the championship, losing only to the Georgian team. The third place belongs to the French team.

Among the athletes representing Russia was a private CSKA sports company (Samara) Yekubjon Nazirov from Yekaterinburg.

“Emotions are off the charts! On the one hand, we were one step away from victory and wanted to take the “gold”. On the other hand, the team competition was held for the first time, so it is very pleasant to become one of the winners and become a part of the history of judo, ”the athlete said.

Now Ekubjon Nazirov is at a training camp at the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Training Center of Russian National Teams“ Lake Krugloye ”in the Moscow Region and is preparing for the Russian Cup.
