Genadi was fighting in his characteristic emotional style, but this time there were not enough emotions for the Georgian sportsman, he took home bronze and silver medals: Levan Saginashvili and Oleg Melentiev on the left hand left Genadi behind, and on the right hand we saw his classic stand-off with the a good friend Levan. The result is much better than at the last European Championships.
Genadi, how do you like this championship?
- As always, the competition was at a high level, so there were good impressions.
Why this time you were in second place? Did Levan became stronger?
- Yes, the second place for me - not at all what I wanted, but it happened. I am glad that Levan won the first place, with which I congratulate him. Levan and I are good friends, and, of course, I am glad of his victory. Levan really became stronger and more powerful. But I was in good shape too. Apparently, I did something wrong in my training. I continue preparing for the future competitions, and during this training I want to strengthen the weak spots.
Who else, besides Levan, impressed you?
- Nobody particularly remembered, but I am pleased with the performance of Levan.
Did you want to meet in fights with Krasimir Kostadinov to get revenge after the Zloty Tour?
- Yes, I wanted to meet at the table with Krasimir, but this time, probably, he was not well prepared, or something prevented him. It is a pity that we did not compete with him.
We wish Genadi good preparation and hope that he will show his best fight at the World Championships!
