Last weekend in Russia, in Lotoshino, Moscow region, an open arm wrestling tournament in memory of Vitaly Sorokin took place. The organizers did not make efforts to highlight the tournament, so there is very little information about it. We will try to tell you about the tournament, using the information, given by sportmen.
The main feature of the tournament was an impressive prize fund and thanks to this a very strong team of participants gathered there. The event was held for two days (separately left and right hands) and the athletes were awarded on the summary result.
In the category of up to 60 kg Roman Tserekaev turned out to be the strongest, he won the category on the left and on the right hand.
In the category of up to 70 kg, Oleg Cherkasov did not leave any chances to his rivals, it was clear that Oleg was ten times stronger than any of his rivals both hands, and Oleg showed a great fight in the open weight class.
In 80 kg class there was good competition - Vadim Akperov, Timur Mammadov, Maxim Filippov and others. On the left hand, as was expected, Oleg Zhokh won easily. On the right hand, the fight for medals was more unpredictable. It is worth mentioning the athlete from Armenia Emil Amirshadyan who went to fight in the category with a weight of 72-73 kg. On the left hand, Emil became the third, the first on the right, in the course of the pulling he defeated Vadim Akperov, Vladimir Mayorov and other strong guys.
In the category of up to 90 kg the legendary Rustam Babaev, who was the first on both hands, pulled. But all traditionally waited for pulling in open class from Rustam.
