On July the 2nd, Anna Mazurenko and Gocha Shavadze met with the head of the Department of Sport and Youth of the Ajara Autonomous Republic, Lasha Chavleshvili and deputy head, Mindia Katamadze.

The city of Batumi is not only the cradle of champions, but also a great place for large sports events. Excellent technical facilities, adequate accommodation, proximity to the airport and the favor of the authorities for the development of sport in the Republic provides Batumi with an already extensive experience in the organization of mass sports events and we hope that armwrestling events such as WAF Worlds or EuroARM will join them soon." - said Anna Mazurenko.
