Okur must first solve the problems with her club

‘The 17 year old young talent tore up the European and World records during the European under 17 Championship in Israel and won three gold medals. She is breaking the juniors’ records while she is still competing in the under 17 category. A very bright future is awaiting Okur.

The interesting aspect of Saziye Okur’s success is that the champion, who has problems with her club, continues her training by herself, without a trainer…
At the same weight class as Olympic and World Champion Nurcan Taylan, Okur indicates that Taylan shows her very close interest and that she recieves her training program from her. As a licenced athlete of Goncaspor, Okur is unable to enter Turkish Championships due to the problems she is experiencing with her club.
