Despite the fact that Dmitry was unable to take part at the European Championships and the Zloty Tur, he participated in professional event Vendetta in Vegas and pulled at the World Championships in Bulgaria:
"This year for me, for example, was stable. Of course, this year I have experienced some difficulties. When you face with difficulties, you have to find ways to solve them, there is always something to strive for".
Dmitry became a part of the key events in armwrestling 2016, but for himself, he highlighted the main achievements and spoke about disappointments:
"This year, the biggest achievement for me was to be selected to the national team and successfully pull at the Worlds. European Championship I was forced to miss. I pulled badly in my first armfight. I hope to gain this year and show a better result".
But there was a thing in 2016 that made Worlds not very happy foe Dmitry – an injury.
This injury was \ the reason that we did not see Dima’s fighs on Zloty Tur:
"As such, I did not have the success of this year, compared to the previous year. But the failure of the year is an injury that I got at the World Championship. Because of this injury, I could not take part in the Zloty Tur and I was disappointed and forced to watch this beautiful event via a monitor".
