MADRID (ESP): Ramil Guliyev, one of Europe’s top sprinters, is set to miss this summer’s World Championships and next year’s Olympics Games in London after a nasty little tug-of-war contest has broken out between Turkey and his native Azerbaijan. Guliyev ran a European junior 200m record of 20.04, when winning at the 2009 World University Games in an Azerbaijan vest, and was also the continent’s fastest man over the distance that year. He spent several months training in Turkey last summer after signing a deal to compete for the Istanbul-based club Fenerbahce. At the end of last year Guliyev decided to fly a different flag and he became a citizen of his adopted country on April 5. Potentially, the next major championship where you could see Guliyev on his blocks will be the 2014 European Outdoor Championships.
