Alex, how was your Supermatch XIII?
Alex Kurdecha: Everything was spontaneous and Italian, fun, emotional, loud. Guys know how to cheer up their players. I really enjoyed it. There were many fans, each participant had his own fan club. Since both amateurs and juniors fought, some fights started right from the morning. The place chosen for the championship was really beautiful, elegant, full of monuments. At first the tournament was held on three tables, and then Vendetta's armfights already at the same table in a very solemn atmosphere. I was the first time in this championship, but I see that the Italians can really make a good event. In all respects and, as I said, in the Italian style.
How's your fight?
Alex Kurdecha: Before, I did not have a chance to pull with Manuel. But I saw how he pulled against Vitaly Laletin. It was a really tough fight, and Vitaly's victory was difficult. I also knew that he was third at the Senec hand tournament in a category with a good composition. Manuel Battaglia is an uncomfortable opponent, he has a very large hand, as if he was specially created for the toproll . Has a long forearm. The match was held in five rounds. For the first three we pulled toproll and with straps. I managed to win every round very quickly and accurately. When I was leading 3-0, in the last two rounds we decided to fight in a hook, so that the audience could see that it was possible.
Alex, since last year's tournament "Zloty Tur 2017", you started a white band in your sports career. On the right hand in the open class you were third. How do you see this period of your career?
Alex Kurdecha: In fact, since November 2017 it is the period of my greatest achievements in arm-wrestling. I want to emphasize here the role of the club coach Armfight Piaseczno, Marcin Lachowicz, in my sporting development. Marcin not only helps me from the point of view of tactics and technology, but also in training with weights.
