We introduce you to the participant of Zloty Tur-2017, the guy who came to the World Cup for the first time and took 4th place on the right hand in the 105 kg class. As it turned out, many people know this athlete, because he leads an active life, promotes his Instagram profile, leads the channel on YouTube. He is really strong, and the size and shape of the biceps is amazing.
But let's give the floor to Sergey Evtushenko.
Sergey, tell us a little about yourself, how did you came up in arm wrestling?
- I do not have a beautiful story, for example, as many say that they came to armwrestling after viewing "Over the Top". I live and train in Rostov-on-Don city, in a specialized arm-wrestler gym PowerPoint. When I was 15 years old, my father took me to the gym, because I was a "difficult teenager", my father wanted me to be disciplined. In the gym there were many sections, wrestling, weightlifting, and I chose armwrestling, because as it seemed to me, there it is necessary to train less there (laughs). I would have known the truth then!
Who do you train today?
- Oh, in that sense, I am lucky! At the very beginning of the class I got to the absolute champion of the region, but, frankly, he did not do much for me, and except for some basics, I could not get anything out of these classes. In general, the coach looked at me skeptical – I was 185 cm and weighed 63-65 kg. In addition, thin bones, ordinary hands - in general, I was not gifted for arm-wrestling. But in the end I was came to Ivan Dobrorezov, a specialist of the highest class. From under his wing there were already many masters of sports. He is a Teacher with a capital letter. In the literal sense, he raised me both as an athlete and as a person. Well, I have ceased to be "difficult" thanks to the trainer. It is the sin to hide - I'm already 27 years old, but still in some moments my coach replaces my father and mother.
