We noticed Nikolay at the Russian Championship, he impressed with his form and style of the fight, which he did not change at the European Championships.
Nikolay, tell us about yourself. Why did you choose armwrestling?
- I began to train as an armwrestler since 2003. Before that there were Taekwondo, then amateur bodybuilding. In armwrestling attracts single combat: you are face to face with an opponent, and only you and he. I train myself, somehow I have no coach.
Tell us about your first significant victory in armwrestling and about the most important victory for today?
- The first significant victory for me was at the championship of the Southern Federal District in 2005, and for today it is, of course, Europe.
What do your training look like? How much time do you need to prepare for the competition?
- I treat myself to the old school. I train every day, except Sunday. I prefer huge weights in free style. I love rod pull in the slope. I try to keep my shape constantly, so to be always ready to compete.
