With these indicators, our wrestlers were significantly ahead of the other teams in the total number of medals (15), losing in the team competition in the number of gold awards only to the Uzbekistan national team, which had 7 gold and 1 silver and bronze award each. The top three winners were completed by the Kazakhstan team, whose kurashists won one gold, two silver and three bronze medals.

According to experts, such progress in this sport is the result of the fruitful work of coaches Dortkuli Tejenov, who headed the men's team of Turkmenistan two years ago, and Shirin Kubaeva, who has been leading the country's women's team for many years, having created a good kurash wrestling school in Lebap velayat. By the way, out of 15 medalists at the 2023 World Cup, 14 are graduates of the Lebap wrestling school.

Shirin Kubaeva is a former famous athlete. For many years, she successfully defended the honor of the country on the world sports arena, becoming the winner and prize-winner of many international competitions. It is noteworthy that in 1997 she successfully graduated from the Turkmen Institute of National Economy with a degree in international economics. For a number of years, Shirin Permanovna combined coaching with work in economic organizations. And only after winning the 2009 Asian Martial Arts Games in Bangkok (Thailand) did she finally decide to focus only on coaching.

“I love being a coach. “Sport is in my genes,” says Sh. Kubaeva, whose father and great-grandfather were engaged in Goresh wrestling and won prizes among palvans at weddings.  According to the head coach of the women's national team of Turkmenistan, the current success of our wrestlers at the 2023 World Cup is a natural result of the policy pursued by the country's leadership on the development of physical education and sports. Thanks to the great attention to the development of this area by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov and the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty Hero-Arkadag, excellent conditions have been created in Turkmenistan for training athletes and holding international tournaments.

Hosting the World Cup is a big responsibility. Turkmenistan, once again acting as the host country of major competitions that brought together many foreign guests from all over the planet, coped with it “excellently”! This opinion was expressed today by athletes who arrived in Ashgabat from many countries, their coaches, journalists from the world's leading media, specialized publications and television channels, and representatives of the International Kurash Federation (IKA).

According to the general opinion of titled athletes and sports experts, heads of delegations, the Turkmen capital is worthy of hosting world championships in many sports. And for this, all conditions have been created here that meet international requirements, including the ultra-modern sports infrastructure of the Olympic village, the construction of which was personally patronized by the National Leader of the Turkmen people Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.

For two days, intense emotions did not subside at the Martial Arts Sports Complex; athletes waged an exciting fight for medals. But despite the intense competition, an interesting rivalry that gave the fans a lot of impressions, the unifying principle was the desire for open and trusting communication and friendship.  For Turkmen athletes and coaches, this was an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with the experience of a number of countries and national federations in the development of kurash wrestling and gain useful experience for the future.

A rich cultural program was prepared especially for the guests, which allowed them to get acquainted with the history and rich heritage of the Turkmen people, their original traditions and customs, the sights of white marble Ashgabat and the first “smart” city of Arkadag in Turkmenistan, and taste national dishes.

The current World Cup was a great success. Both athletes and fans received unforgettable impressions from the Ashgabat World Cup, which became possible thanks to the personal attention and support of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov and the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Hero-Arkadag.  The 2023 World Cup has ended, giving everyone a sea of ​​positive emotions and joy. Many became fans of kurash wrestling, the fights were so exciting and filled with the desire to win.

The success of the current tournament increased the pride of all Turkmen citizens for the Fatherland and once again confirmed the status of Turkmenistan as a sports power that is capable of hosting and hosting world-class competitions.
