Boris Yotov (AZE)

Rising Star – December 2014

Boris Yotov is Azerbaijan’s promising 18-year-old rower. Last year, in 2013, he won a bronze medal at the World Rowing Junior Championships in the men’s single sculls. This year he won silver in the single at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games. He has already proven himself at senior level, winning a silver medal at the 2014 European Rowing Championships and at the World Rowing Cup in Aiguebelette, France, in the men’s double sculls. For these reasons, World Rowing has picked him out as an athlete on the rise in the world of rowing.

Rowing, for me, is a way of life.

So far, my favourite accomplishment in rowing is… second place at the World Rowing Cup in the men’s double sculls (M2x).

If I wasn't rowing my sport would be... volleyball, because when I was younger, I trained in football and volleyball. And if I had continued with rowing, I would have continued my training in volleyball.

My sporting heroes are… the Sinkovic brothers from Croatia.

If I could have one super power it would be… teleportation so that I could teleport myself anywhere, anytime.

My favourite training session is… interval training

My least favourite training session is… is the Concept2 machine, because it is really heavy.

The regatta venue I like most is… in Lucerne, Switzerland.

When I am not rowing, I… like to meet friends.

My favourite music is… rap, and my favorite artist is Eminem.

My goal in rowing is… to win a medal at the Olympic Games in Rio.
