The first day of the European Championship was held, juniors and youth pulled on the left hand. ()
The first thing to note is the emotional richness of the struggle. Young athletes did not hesitate to express their emotions during fights, as well as spectators to provide support. A pleasant impression is created, and there is a certainty that in the future, thanks to such characteristic signs, armwrestling will become more spectacular and impressive. I would also like to note the mood with which the athletes pulled, trying not to give the slightest chance to the opponent, for which, for example, says a lot of winning rematch in the finals.
So, already the second final match among the girls-18, 50 kg, was marked by a vivid struggle: the Polish debutant Weronika Soja in a difficult duel defeated Ukrainian Lesya Varych.
The first rematch we saw already in the final category 60 kg among the young men, where met Nikita Kuravin (Russia) and Nodari Tsikhelashvili (Georgia). Also spectacular were fights of youth categories 70 kg Giorgi Ambroladze - Magomed Eldarov, 75 kg Digurov Sarmat - Alin Tudor (Alin has very specific fighting technique, but Sarmat managed to find the key to it) and 80 kg Mikhail Kochedyshkin - Nodari Kevkhishvili.
Among youth-21, we saw already well-formed athletes, who after a while will come to press the senior weight category.
