Zloty Tour is an event that outstrips any other in the world of armwrestling. ()
Why do I say? I see the statistics: how many people are interested to watch regular amateur championships, and how many - particularly Zloty Tur.
Zloty Tur this year exceeded last year's by all accounts, not to mention the earlier events. Organizing the first cup, we had no idea, how we can develop.
First Zloty Tur was devoted to the opening of the first sports club in Gdynia, which works now. Behind him we opened "Golden Lion" in Lembork, then another club, and then out of this we did a federation in Poland.
In 2001 we wanted Zloty Tur to be attended with someone else besides Ukrainians and Poles. And we reached our goal, here were about 9-11 countries, all 50 participants. We went out to the external market.
2002. We are interested only in Alexey Voevoda and his revenge with Jan Germanus. But the level of Alexei was much higher, and Jan was defeated.
In 2003, we tried to invite any TV-channel. One girl from Polish television came to us, she promised a program of 40-50 minutes, but shot only 17. And we were happy with it.
In 2004, our goal was to get into the TV, to show armwrestling to the audience on any channel. I look at this video ... It's funny, but what to do, this was the time.
In 2005 we wanted to go live, and we have done that.
In 2006 we increased cash prizes. There were many participants, John Brzenk became a regular visitor, also here was Farid Usmanov.
In 2007 we conducted Zloty Tur in casino Olympic at Hilton hotel. There's the first time we held a competition for the left hand. Competitions were held for two days, the prize money was also duplicated.
In 2008, the first time we have invited Denis Tsyplenkov. The composition was really stellar. In 2008, the first time we decided in addition to television channels to broadcast on the Internet. It collected a small amount of views, but the start was given.
The first tourists began to come to us, just to watch.
