Azerbaijani athletes who won medals at this year's Summer Universiade in Naples are set to receive cash prizes from the country's Government after President Ilham Aliyev signed a reward order today.
Aliyev's Presidential Order will see gold medallists pocket AZN50,000 (£23,400/$29,000/€26,000), while those who claimed silver will be given AZN30,000 (£14,100/$17,600/€15,700).
Bronze medallists from Azerbaijan at the event, which ran from July 3 to 14, will be rewarded with AZN20,000 (£9,400/$11,700/€10,400).
Azerbaijan won a total of seven medals at Naples 2019, including two golds.
Nazim Babayev clinched the men's triple jump title, while gymnast Marina Nekrasova triumphed in the women's vault.
Zohra Aghamirova will be the highest earner from the Government scheme as she secured two silver medals in artistic gymnastics after finishing second in the clubs and all-around events.
Hidayat Heydarov was Azerbaijan's other silver medallist as he lost in the final of the men's under-73 kilograms judo competition.
Patimat Abakarova claimed bronze in the women's under-53kg taekwondo event, a feat matched by the men's squad in the team judo.
Coaches of medallists are also set to be given money from the Azerbaijan Government.
Those who helped an athlete claim gold will receive AZN25,000 (£11,700/$14,700/€13,100), with AZN15,000 (£7,000/$8,800/€7,800) going to coaches of silver medallists and AZN10,000 (£4,700/$5,900/€5,200) to coaches of bronze medallists.
