«I would like to apologize to all fans across Kazakhstan for such performance [at the Olympic Games]. In all honesty, I am disappointed myself. It’s been two years since I have helmed the national team and we had four finalists at the Asian championships. However, in the world of sport anything can happen. Please, accept my sincere apologizes once again. Perhaps, we needed more time [for preparations],» he said.

Recall that two Kazakhstan wrestlers Demeu Zhadrayev and Nursultan Tursynov lost in Men’s Greco-Roman 77kg 1/8 Final and in Men’s Greco-Roman 87kg 1/8 Final at the Tokyo Olympics, respectively.
