LIPARTELIANI DEFEATS CADET EUROPEAN CHAMPION TO TAKE FINAL TRIUMPH

LIPARTELIANI DEFEATS CADET EUROPEAN CHAMPION TO TAKE FINAL TRIUMPH

Gold medalist -52kg: Mzia Beboshvili (GEO)

“I was very happy to win the Cadet European Championships couple of weeks ago but nothing can compare to win a tournament in your own country … in front of your friends and family.

Gold medalist -57kg:  Eteri Liparteliani (GEO)

“The crowd was an extra boost for me and it was a fantastic atmosphere and I wasn’t nervous at all, it was rather the opposite for me …. I lost against Kanerva twice already but before that contest I thought if I managed to reach the semi-final stage I have to win regardless of the opponent.”

Gold medalist -73kg: Hasil Jafarov (AZE)

“I am really happy, I worked hard for this and I would like to thank to our president. I am proud to win the gold medal and I am grateful to my parents and coaches for all their support. I also would like to thank to the Georgian Federation for hosting this event.”
