The USA National Armwrestling Championships ended recently and Vazgen Soghoyan finished it with a golden double. Was it too hard to conquer golden medals this time? ()
Vazgen, tell, please, about the American Nationals.
– The USA National Championship was held in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Tahoe is a magnificent place, one of the highest mountain lakes in the world. It is also a winter sports resort and a popular tourist center. Athletes from almost every state arrived to compete at Nationals. Many of them were chasing a spot in the Team USA. The number of participants is not so big (250 entries), many American armwrestlers compete in pro leagues are engaged in those tournaments.
What fight as for you was the most entertaining?
– One of the most entertaining fights to my mind were Herman Stevens vs Michael Vaz in absolute championship and Robert Baxter vs Scot Mendelson in Masters 100+kg.
