I decided to support the Bid of Baku through my membership in the Bid Committee. Beside my sport carreer I am now looking forward to support and in the sequel work for Olympic Games in Baku. For many years, people of Azerbaijan could only watch Olympic Games on their TVs. I believe that holding Olympic Games in 2016 in Baku will be an unforgettable experience for the people of the country. I am sure that everybody in Azerbaijan will support their capital's bid to host the Games.
