Sonia, tell, please, how did you come to armwrestling?
– I entered the armwrestling 12 years ago. Once we saw armwrestling competition and asked one of my brothers to take part in it, there because he was very strong. He competed and won... I wanted to compete but that day they did not let me, because there was no female category. So wait a few months for a tournament with female category, pulled there and won. So I asked other sportsmen and they told me where to train and learn the technique. From that moment I fell in love with this sport. It is so cool that two of my three brothers and my father also joined this world. My younger brother managed to always be among the top three positions both in provincials and nationals, so Michael won the junior national in 2013. But the one who is always with me at championships and trainings is my father Juan Antonio, more known as "the grandfather". Last year he appeared in the Worlds in Hungary, senior grandmaster -75kg class, and he won a 4th place on right and 2nd place on left hand. Currently I train with my father, Jaba Getiashvili (Georgia) and Ivan Portela.
