Abakarov raised the Albanian flag in Belgrade, Fidel Ylli: Foreigners are coming

A few days ago in Belgrade, Zelimkhan Abakarov gave Albania its first gold medal in the sport of wrestling in a world championship.

KOKSH president Fidel Ylli spoke about this in the "SportZone" show on MCN TV.

The latter said that Abakarov was spotted by the President of the Wrestling Federation, Prizren, while adding that foreign athletes come to Albania because of the good conditions and rewards.

Ylli said that Albania does not suffer for talents in the sport of wrestling, but suffers for coaches.

" Wrestling produced a world champion in 2012. We couldn't keep Elis Guri, because we needed the law we have now, because he wanted reward and fitness and he didn't have it. Foreigners are coming to us, due to good conditions and rewards, in some sports. We are currently struggling for coaches. We do not suffer for talents. We have undertaken to bring a world-class champion to the Wrestling Federation, who will not only train the Albanian coaches, but also be part of the national team.

Luiza Gega has trained in very good conditions in Kenya. Often times, athletics call this natural doping. Sport is a science in itself, from the way an athlete trains" , said Fidel Ylli.
