How long did you go to the prize place at Europeans? How do you think, what interrupted you to get it earlier?
– I've started to train seriously as an athlete in 2013 for the vendetta with Davide Kappa. I could have get the silver medal in 2015 at 110 kg but my decision for that year was to participate in 100 kg category, so I've made a drastic weight loss.
Who was your toughest rival and why?
– I didn't feel any of my adversaries to be spectacular, considering the multiple European and world titles they have. All I felt was the weight difference (20 kg and 40 kg above my weight).
In qualification for the final, I made a false start and then we started the match from referee grip. I made a false start again and I stopped as soon as I realized that but the referee let the match continue, which he should not have done according to the rules.
