Azerbaijan will be represented by Teimour Radjabov, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Eltaj Safarli, Rauf Mamedov and Gadir Guseinov.

"We all feel very sorry but we do hope that this tournament will be the last one missed by Vugar and that he would return back into the team and big chess” – Head coach of the team Vladimir Tukmakov says.

Vugar became the second top player who is missing the Olympiad because of his poor health. However, there is somebody to take Morozevich’s place in the Russian team, while in Azerbaijan it is quite hard to find somebody as strong as Gashimov.
