Only 3 days left for the Rio2016. What do you guys think of our medal chances?

My personal favorite is Rovshan Bayramov. The kid deserves his gold medal. I am also eager to see what Haji and Togrul will do. The expectations are high for both of them. Rasul is also among the favorites, and I think he can do very well. Jabrayil has been an underachiever so far, and he will need to be at his best to medal in his weight category.

We can also do well in judo. The head coach Seisenbacher has improved the physicality component of our athletes, and it showed over the past few years. At least four judokas (Orkhan, Nijat, Rustam, and Elmar) are among medal contenders.

We might get a bronze medal or two in boxing, but I don't expect much.

I expect 1 gold and minimum 1 bronze from boxing. I have high hopes for Elvin Mamishzade.

As for wreslting, I agree that Rovshan deserves gold. But whether he gonna get it, we'll see. His getting old. I think Toghrul, Haji and Rasul got fantastic chances for gold. So from wrestling, I expect 2 golds plus other medals.

Expect medal from artistic gymnastics.

So overall, my prediction:

3 golds, 3 silver, 8 bronze. :coffee:

Rustam Orujov (judo 73kg),made it to the final and will batte for gold vs a japanese opponent. Good luck to our boy.
We got silver. Could've gotten gold if Orujov was more agressive against Japanese. Still good stuff :smile2:

The Jap was strong and stocky but props to Rustam for getting a silver on his olympic debut- he's only 24 so hes got plenty of time to get a gold in the future.

I hope Elmar Gasimov can bring us another medal in Judo - hes our best chance from the remaining participants.

Great job by Rustam. The world #2, he was among favorites, and he delivered. Now, let's hope that Rustam doesn't fade away like Elnur did.
