UNEC student who joined the rivalry from the ¼ final defeated her rival from Algeria Atif Imenen. Our sportsman was ahead of Nargiz Nargis from Pakistan in 1:0 in the semi-final.
Farida Aliyeva is majoring at UNEC in International Relations. Sharing the joy of silver medal with her group mates, UNEC student said she wished to become a champion: “I did my best. However, I lost my belief the last moment. Previous fights were very intense. I was very excited in the final. The excitement bored me. It was hard to perform tricks I wanted to”.
A silver medalist student of UNEC did not inform her group mates and teachers that she would compete in the 4th Islamic Solidarity Games: “I think it is hard to realize the imaginations when we speak about them. That’s why I have never spoken about my achievements in the group. The workload, written exams take much time in the faculty I study. In addition, I was training for the competitions along with my lessons. I tried to separate them from each other, to succeed in both of them. My silver medal was a great surprise for my friends and teachers. They were upset not to be invited to the competitions…”
F.Aliyeva expressed proud to be a student who got the silver medal of the 4th Islamic Solidarity Games: “I was preparing for the exams, along with a prestigious competition. I did not leave my lessons to the second plan, but for my trainings. I will say with proud ever more that I am UNEC students!”
