We will remind that fundamental change in this Olympic sport, happened, when the general founder of "AS Group Investment" Group of companies Shahin Movsumov became the president of Azerbaijan's national archery Federation.

In particular, the material base improved, some republican records were broken.

The coach of national team Sergey Gospodinov: “"Following the results of a tournament it is possible to draw conclusions that these competitions are very useful to our athletes, especially for youth which finds enormous experience. Despite the high competition, the Azerbaijani archers won one gold, two silver and one bronze medals. The good result was shown by Taras Senyuk, having repeated success of last year. In comparison with last year improved the results R. Vengerov, Ya. Ramazanova, A. Guseynov, S. Mugabilzada. Quite good result, for the first time showed R. Mamedov. O. Senyuk lost in fight for an exit in the eight to the sportswoman from Poland. But, she showed good performance in team fight.

Unfortunately, there are still shortcomings of training of athletes. Not all athletes managed to correct until the end of a mistake which are shown more at competitions and to show the real result. Trainers need to pay more attention to training of athletes and in time to eliminate defects of equipment and adjustment of onions. It is necessary to participate to a bowl on tournaments of such level. It is real opportunity for check of readiness of athletes for official competitions".
