We are hearing from athletes participating in the First European Games in Baku that these games are as good as the Olympics in sports tension and even better in the terms of organization, sports commentator of Vestnik Kavkaza, Orhan Elchuev, has said live on Vesti FM Radio.
"On the seventh day the Russian team took six gold medals, its lion's share was won by wrestlers," Elchuev said.
