Yiğit said that they are preparing for the tournament in a very short time and said: “Our athletes are inexperienced against other competitors. We started with the Olympics in Samsun in 2017, we established our team. So we're a little behind in terms of experience. When we look at the foreign athletes who came here, especially the Russians, they have been interested in this sport since childhood. Despite this, our athletes are struggling head to head, the degrees are very close but this difference will be closed in a little time. Even though 2 is a year-old history, the degrees we get are very good. Our goal is to have a say in our experience as our other competitors. I believe that if they don't take a break, they can do it. We became 100 in the 2 kilometer competition for men in teams. Our tactics are adjusted accordingly. It was very difficult to deal with the opponents individually, but it was a head-to-head challenge. As a team, we have achieved our goal and have taken the stand. ”
