Alex, we already know that you are doing American football. How do you combine armwrestler training with football?
A.K. There are two completely different spheres of sport, so they are difficult to combine. But at the same time I like both armwrestling and American football. In armwrestling, first of all, the strength of hands is important, and for the player, general preparation, training of jerks and jerks and correct technique of their execution are necessary. General physical training is very important in both sports, but talking about special preparation for an event, if I prepare for something, then I pay less attention to the other.
This year, you pulled at the Zloty Tur and achieved impressive success, winning the bronze medal on the right hand, after many fights. How do you like this competition?
A.K. The Professional World Cup in armwrestling is a competition at the highest level, the opportunity to be there already shows a high level of preparation. I am very happy and proud that I could represent Poland at this tournament! In 2017, 23 participants took part in the heavyweight category, which is a record number. Many athletes in this category pulled at the World and European championships. When I saw the starting list, I realized that there would be a "hardcore armwrestling". The fight was hard and exciting! At the moment when I realized that I could achieve my goal and win a medal among the strongest in the world, I was overjoyed.
In addition to the Zloty Tur, you also achieved success at the Polish Cup, where you became the strongest in the category 105+ and OPEN.
