As Azerbaijan continues to bask in the glory of its international sports events, its underlying motives remain clear.
I didn't know anything about Azerbaijan before reading your story. Did you enjoy Baku?
very nice read, thank you Karim!
Azerbaijan has the 12th most overall Medals in Wrestling (35), 11th in Golds (6), when counting Russia, Russian's being under sanctions, and the Soviet Union separately. Combat sports are their true passion, but those obviously don't pull the same sports washing power that F1 or Soccer do.
