A couple of years ago we presented you the story that you can make the unusual, using unusual arm strength. We had the opportunity to talk with Vyacheslav Karpov, who works as a doctor. What does he do with his superstrong arms? ()
Vyacheslav has a great sports experience and very important job. Vyacheslav is a vascular surgeon. Does armwrestling interfere this fine work, and how vascular surgery helps in the sport?
Vyacheslav, tell us about yourself. What place does sport occupy in your life?
- I am vascular surgeon. I do sports most of my adult life. First it was football, then powerlifting and, finally, armwrestling!
I began to pull at the competition since 2005. It was possible to take part at almost all Russian tournaments of central region, at the European and world championships and professional tournaments - Nemiroff World Cup, A1 Russian Open, Top-8 in Bulgaria. Somewhere I pulled well, somewhere – not very. But I always managed to combine sport with studies, then - with the work.
Why did you choose arm wrestling?
- Arm wrestling, in my opinion, optimally combines the major sporting qualities - strength, speed and endurance, forms, like any sport, strong nature and willpower.
You have a difficult profession – doctor.
