Interview with Najmiddin Kosimhodzhiev, who won a silver medal at the Turkish Open at the age of 17

17-year-old Najmiddin Kosimhodzhiev, who won a silver medal at the international tournament "Turkish Open":

"I was born on August 28, 2004, from a young age I was interested in taekwondo, studied and grew up under the guidance of my first coach Sobir Nazaraliev.

The Turkish Open tournament was my first international competition among adults. I want to thank the coaching staff of the national team for their trust in me.
I am very glad that I won this start. In total, I had 6 fights at these competitions, the last three fights were against representatives of South Korea. They were all older than me. I think I didn't have enough experience in the final, I will try to improve my result at the next competitions," said Najmiddin Kasimkhodzhiev.
