Awarding ceremony of judo athletes and their coaches

Today, Aziz Abdukhakimov awarded the athletes of Uzbekistan in judo and their coaches who were able to get permits to participate in the XXXII Summer Olympic Games.

The award ceremony began with an introductory speech by the Minister of Tourism and Sports Aziz Abdukhakimov:

– Fortunately, our judoists this time will participate in the Olympic Games more often than ever – with 11 licenses. However, Uzbek judoists have not yet won gold medals at the Olympic Games. Let's hope that this tradition will be broken.

This was followed by an award ceremony for judoists and their coaches. The amount of the award for athletes was 100 million soums, and 50 million soums were allocated for their coaches.
