    - Vadim Eduardovich, team returned from Vietnam a few days ago. Have you already made the conclusions of the Asian Championships?

    - This is a beginning of the new Olympic cycle I consider the performance was not bad. I can surely tell you that in all fights our girls have shown the huge aspiration to win. There are a lot of responsible tournaments including the World Championships and Asian Games in 2018. We will keep working hard to improve our boxing skills and to become stronger.

    - What was wrong with Darigf Shakimova in a semi-final?

    - Please note that Dariga had a very strong competitor, the semifinalist of the Olympic Games in Rio - Li Kiyang from China. In my opinion it was the close fight and our boxer was closer to win. But if the judge decided to give preference to the Chinese boxer, so it means she should box better that judges had no doubts in our Shakimova's superiority.

    - In the final Valentina Khalzova was close to win in the 69 kg weight category. What was it not enough to win?

    - Valentina had problems with the back and it affected the result. I think she didn't show her best boxing because of that.

    - Madina Nurshayeva perfectly participated at this tournament. Prior to the tournament you expected that she would fight for "gold"?

    - Madina proved that she is an athlete capable to win awards at the big tournaments. We knew that this girl can do a lot of things and believed in her. She well was adjusted, has given all the best for all hundred percent and has deservedly won a gold medal. I hope it is not her first outstanding success. Now the main thing is not to relax, victories can make your head spin. Madina is a good girl and is always working on herself.
