The national taekwondo team of Turkmenistan successfully performed at the CIS - World Cup, held in Minsk, and won 10 medals of different denominations. Turkmen athletes won 2 gold, 3 silver and 5 bronze medals.
Azatmyrat Mukhammedov, a 7th grader from Ashgabat Secondary School 51, and Abdullah Redjebov, a student of the Turkmen State Architecture and Construction Institute, added gold to the Turkmen team's collection.
Orazmyrat Charyyev, winner of several international competitions, did not return to the country without a medal this time, either. His performance was marked by a silver medal. The same success was achieved by Goshaniyaz Durdyev, who competed in the weight category of up to 71 kilograms in hand-to-hand wrestling.
International tournament judges considered Annamurat Goshaniyazov's performance worthy of a bronze medal. Amanberdi Agadjanov, who appeared on the mat in the weight category up to 78 kg, and Orazmukhammet Ustaev, acting in the weight category up to 58 kg, also found a place on the third step of the podium.
