Irakli Gamtenadze had two major international starts in 2016, European Championship in Romania and the World Championship in Bulgaria. ()
With each of these championships, he has taken away with two medals. We believe that this is an excellent result, Irakli agrees:
"I am very pleased with 2016. The first time I got four medals: two gold medals at the European Championships and two bronze medals at the World Championships. I am particularly pleased with the results of the European Championship. I'm glad for all Georgian team because we won the team score in both championships in the category of senior man. All guys rock!
I am satisfied with World Championship because I was lucky. I was not in good shape, the left hand was almost dead, I was hoping only on luck. I said, if I now take the medal, it will never go to the competitions unprepared, with injuries. And I was lucky! I am satisfied with my students, they become stronger and stronger and achieve success".
Of course all of us wonder how Zloty Tur would pass if Irakli would fight there. We believe, he certainly would not get lost there:
"On Zloty Tur, of course, I was interested in my category (up to 95kg). I think that I could change the course of events. I convenient to deal with toprollers, no matter how it seemed to the readers.
