The first competition day of the world armwrestling championship has come to the end. Today, young people of the age categories of 18 and 21 delighted us with an excellent struggle for the left hand. ()
The general mood, as befits the world championships, was well-coordinated, the fights were fast, the athletes fought very qualitatively, and the confirmation is that a low number of protests (about three).
The general level of preparation was high, but I want to note a few particularly interesting fights.
Thus, Oksana Pismennaya from Kazakhstan won the weight category of 70 kg among juniors. Remarkably, she repeated her last year's success in the junior category, and now we are looking forward to her performance in the senior category.
A skating rider in the category +80 kg of boys-18 was walked by the Georgian athlete Vaso Imerlishvili. Despite his young age, he has an impressive strength and, it seems, absolutely did not feel his rivals. Could someone resist him on his right?
Islam Reissov won success, similar to the achievement of his compatriot Oksana Pismennaya. In the final match, he met his long-standing (as far as possible in the category under 21 years) rival Oraz Bassarov. After a protracted struggle, rematching and tickling nerves for coaches and spectators, Islam took the gold.
The Azerbaijani athlete Nemat Vakilov pulled very technically.
