Reza Dilmaghanian has an important mission at the Zloty Tur – he is a camera referee. But also he will pull this year too. What did Reza aim for the World Cup? ()
Reza, you'll travel to Zloty Tur not at first. How do you feel about the upcoming event? What motivates you to come there?
– I'm super excited about the Zloty Tur this year. The level of competition just continues to get higher.
What motivated me to come to Poland for the Zloty Tur this year is the opportunity to beat some of the Kazakhs, kids that beat me last year. As well I will be cam reffing the matches during the semis and finals.
Tell, please, about your preparation? Whom do you consider as the most difficult rival? What result do you expect?
– As for my preparation, I've been doing a lot of heavy isometrics and repetition work outs, pulling with my team mates, as well as local tournaments. But what I feel differentiates me from last year is I now know what to prepare for. Last year I really had no idea of the directions or moves my opponents would go. This made me over analyze I feel in the set up leaving me to not focus on my hit as much. As for rivals. I’d really like to get a win on any of the guys from Kazakhstan and Georgia, this is my goal for this year. As for placement. I'd love to be top three but it’s all about the brackets. Last year my first right handed match was a crazy battle with a Japanese puller and he exhausted me with his kings move. After the match I only had about 3 mins to recover. I was on the A side of the bracket. so, my second match was against one of the Kazakh kids and he easily beat me because he flashed his first opponent and really didn't waste any energy in flashing me due to my fatigue. So it’s all about the brackets when it comes to such high caliber events.
