On 5 August of the current year, the 5th Islamic Solidarity Games started in Konya, Turkey.

Within the programs scheduled for 11 August, Uzbek athletes won 7 gold medals.

Athletes who won gold medals:
1. Olga Zabelinskaya (cycling),
2. Sukhrob Khodjayev (athletics (shot  put),
3. Jakhongirmirza Turopov (freestyle wrestling),
4. Omadbek Khasanov (athletics (class high jump),
5. Shukhrat Salayev (taekwondo),
6. Bekhzod Abdurakhmanov (freestyle wrestling)
7. Sharifa Davronova (athletics (triple jump).

It should be noted that Sharifa Davronova, winner of the World Youth Championship held in Colombia, took second place with a score of 14.30 meters. However, Tugba Danishmas, who took first place with a score of 14.41 meters, broke the rules by pressing the red line at the start.

The coaching staff of the Athletics Federation of Uzbekistan gave timely denial to the judicial committee about this situation.  At the end of the competition, this situation was considered by experts.  As a result, by reviewing the video, it was established that the athlete made a technical error, that is, crossed the red line, and the result of 14.41 meters of the Turkish national team member was cancelled.  As a result, Sharif Davronov from Samarkand received a gold medal instead of a silver one.
For reference: The Islamic Solidarity Games will last until 18 August.
