For the first time in the history of the International Judo Federation, one of our
four yearly Grand Slams will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan and this will be the
second Grand Slam of the season after the Paris edition, early February.
The Judo Federation of Azerbaijan has already proven several times over the
past sports seasons, his ability to organize major judo events like in 2011,
with the World Judo Masters, and several editions of the Grand Prix. The Grand
Slam will undoubtedly be a great success and the best judoka of the planet
will gather in Azerbaijan.
As we begin a new Olympic period, we are facing several challenges and
thanks to everyone’s help, we are ready to give to the judo world all the place it
deserves. Your participation in the Baku Grand Slam helps us in this process.
In the name of the IJF, I thank you for this.
I wish good luck and a great success to all the participants and organizers of
the Grand Slam, Baku 2013.
Marius L. VIZER
In Azerbaijan holding of the Grand Slam competition which carrying out 4
times a year is a significant event in the sports history of our country. I would
like to express my gratitude to the President of International Judo Federation,
Mr. Marius Vizer and the members of the federation for support in conducting
such a grand competition in Azerbaijan. It is also a high international
assesment of conducted in the sphere of sports activities in Azerbaijan.
All of us like judo and know that judo is not only fighting art and health
but also the collection of the value connecting people and a great culture.
In Azerbaijan which joined to the world judo family from 1972, there were
taken a special heed of such kind of sports and after the declaration of
independence this attention was increasing. Not by accident that today
interest in judo in our country every year more and more increases, many dojo
work and Azerbaijan is a owner of such grand international competititon.
Dedicated to the memory of national leader Heydar Aliyev the Grand Slam
competition is also in this series. Great leader Heydar Aliyev whose 90th
anniversary we are celebrating, in his multiyear political power activities
along with other areas in Azerbaijan made a great and unrepeatable historic
contribution to the sustainable development and promotion of the sports in the
I am sure the most strong judokas of the world will be fighting in conducting
on May, Grand Slam competition and it will become a real holiday that will
interest all the sports community.
As the Azerbaijan Judo Federation we will work even more confident in the
future to further strengthen our activities and achieve new successes with You.
