The national athlete, who strengthened his fitness by training in high-altitude regions in Van under the supervision of his coaches, wants to come first in the European Cross Country Championship to be held in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, on Sunday, December 10, and to return as a champion from Europe, where he had previously placed second.

I say that I am second in Europe and I have not won the world championship yet. It makes me happy to be an example to those around me. The children in my neighborhood do sports with me, my two cousins ​​started running by taking me as an example. They want to follow in my footsteps.”

Explaining that it is beneficial to train in the mountains and in hilly places, the young athlete said, “The fact that our city has a high altitude is beneficial to me. Runners generally want to train in high altitude places. Thanks to the training we do in the mountains in winter, we achieve good results on the running tracks. We are the world high school cross country champion and world champion.” I aim to be.” made his assessment.

“We aim to represent our country in the best way”

National team coach Münir Akkoyun stated that many successful athletes have been trained in Van, thanks to its high altitude.

“She will represent both our country and our province in the championship to be held in Belgium on December 10. As always, we aim to be in the top three and represent our country in the best way. Edibe sets an example for young athletes and those around her. She will go to the World High School Cross Country Championship “We formed the team. Edibe is also on the team. After the European Championship, we will go to the World Championship and wave our flag. Our national athlete started to be at the top in a short time and made a name for herself.”
