12 Eylül 2014, 12:21

Atletizm Dunyasi has launched with in-depth Ramil Guliyev interview in Autumn 2014 issue. 24 years-old Turkish record holder Guliyev told about his athletics story and future goals. He is looking out of future champs now to making three consecutive 200 metres finals.

Ramil looks out consistency Turkey's only athletics magazine Atletizm Dunyasi published after Zurich 2014 European Championships with a cover of Mo Farah's 10000 metres finish photo, just front of Ali Kaya, who grabbed only medal for Turkey at Letzigrund. Zurich stories had a lot of pages in that issue, but also in-dept Ramil Guliyev interview is contains interesting matters.

Ramil Guliyev, who available to run first time for Turkey in las year's Mediterranean Games, is challenging for  transforming to his prime days. He run 20.04 in 200 metres and 10.08 100 metres in 2009 summer, then compete in 200 metres final at World Champs in Berlin same year. After that, he broke ties with Azerbaijan Federation before moved to Istanbul in 2010. Ramil said that decision one of the best of his life, because he unable to running freely in Azerbaijan anymore after the conflict with federation. He drafted by Fenerbahçe, one of the leading club in Turkish sport, to compete for them, also for Turkish national team. But Azerbaijan denied to gave permission for him, that lead up to three-years waiting period.

Ramil took two silver medals at Mediterranean Games in Mersin last summer, then surpassed one of the greatest season of his young career in 2014. He clocked 10.20 in 100 metres in June, broke another Turkish record, made a historic Balkan sprint double in Pitesti (just second time in Turkish athletics history) and reached 200 metres final in Zurich, that is first sprint final ever to run a Turkish man in a big championships.

He said to magazine "I'm aiming three big finals consecutively now. I made a first step in Zurich, but other two is more difficult from this one. I'm always more confident runner in 200 metres then shorter one. So, I'm only looking to made 'at least' final in Beijing and Rio. In Olympics, I will be on my prime time for sprinting, at age of 26, that's my biggest goal so far."

He also explained his 100 metres fault in Zurich is deliberately for more focusing on 200 metres race, but he didn't expect to final that slow. "If I had to predicted Jimmy Vicaut wouldn't compete in final and had been a so moderated final start list, of course I could compete there. Bu you never know what will happened in there before the race."
