Or, another interview with Igor, on the occasion of the meeting in Warsaw. ()
NEMIROFF again in November, location to be determined. Unofficially, we know that it will be a luxury hotel in the city center, but not the one in which the event was held last year. I assure you that it will be even closer to the Warsaw Central Railway Station and the airport (and I don’t mean the mock-up in Modlin :-). Views will be comparable, several interesting clubs (not just fitness clubs:-) in the neighbourhood.
The date is set for November 8-10, so we’ll miss an unforgettable sight of police and demonstrations on the Polish Independence Day on November 11. But those who want to, can stay a bit longer.
We started our conversation with the news of the day, that is, deleting wrestling from the list of core Olympic sports.
Igor, after all many armwrestlers began their careers as wrestlers in the early 90s. I mean the first group of Russians who competed in the famous confrontation with the Americans…
Igor: I don’t know why, but at that time Armwrestling was somehow associated with wrestling, which after all is nonsense, because Armwrestling has nothing to do with wrestling...
I cannot agree with you. These two sports have a lot in common, for wrestlers in those days were well prepared to armwrestle, thanks to overall fitness, flexibility, and many others ... They also had a proven methodology and they certainly used it in a general sense. I also remember that some good wrestling trainers in Russia got into Armwrestling.
As it happens, our discussion stretched over an hour, but it will be the subject of another article. Then we moved to the question - whether our aspiration to join the group of Olympic or Paralympics sports is appropriate or not.
