“Georgian athletes’ main goal is to win and make Georgia famous,” Georgian weightlifter and Olympic Champion Lasha Talakhadze told Georgian First Channel.
Olympic Champion has responded to the politicians’ recent offensive statements towards Georgian sportsmen.
“We are far from politics. Our main goal is victory and we do our best to bring fame to our country.
We want Georgian Anthem to be heard all over the world. I will try hard to play Georgian Anthem in Moscow which will be my response to all those who doubt our patriotism.
I wish good luck to the Georgian rugby players who play against Belgium and then Russia,” Lasha Talakhadze stressed.
