Muslim: A Wolf Among “Les Bleus”

A wrestler of Cavigal club from Nice, Muslim Saypulayev is a fully integration example. The Chechen origine athlete, Muslim, fights with “Les Bleus” (France National Team).

Muslim Saypulayev, 21 years old, left from his homeland Chechnya and the conflicts, and gave a new direction to his life. He choosed japanese mats at Azor Coast. This young was born in Gronzy, the capital of his homeland, and brought up with worthies of his nation’s source of pride. The bravery, honor and dignity is the meaning of life for them. “The Wolf” is a perfect illustration. This wild animal is a Chechen symbol and combines all these values strongly. Muslim is closely a value memorial. Now the wolf goes into henhouse, following a difficult six-years training process. This young man is starving for awards, and replaced his wolf fur for pretty costume with a rooster emblem that is French symbol “Le Coq”.

A Steely Willpower in the Body of Champion

“I have ever had an ambition to be participate of national team, since I arrived in France. I waited impatiently for mine papers to be a participant of the biggest international sport event with ‘Les Bleus’ (French national team),” says Muslim Saypulayev.

His steely willpower never left him. With his ten years experience on wrestling, Muslim took his first steps to japanese mats of Azur Coast on 96 kg free style category at “Lutte Club” in an old French city, Nice. He met with Frederic Le Calvez and this acquaintance throws light on his wrestling career. They found the sport club “Cavigal” together. Today this young man is an exact integration example. From now on Muslim is an indispensable coach at his club and will get his diplom in this year. Eighty new-arrival foreign nationals took out their wrestling licence through him. “I am in Frederic’s debt because he never left me, and he incited me to go up through the ranks in the wrestling, but also in my private life. Mr Pierre Panizzoli and Sébastien Giaume, both are important for me,” say young wrestler.

Muslim became the Vice Champion of France in 2009, and the Champion in 2010 at his category; with this results he participated to “Les Bleus” from a big door. At this time, he won the international wrestling tournament of Lille, as an only awarded French wrestler. In this days, he is hard training and he prepares himself to 2012 Olympic Games.

In the face of such a table, a question comes to our minds: there are “Golden Lion” awards at Vedenice Film Festivals; then why not there are “Golden Wolf” awards at London Wrestling Championship?
