Alex Kurdecha is perhaps the most controversial participant in the Top 8 tournament and a real dark horse. He is considered an outsider, but we believe that he is fully worthy of participation. Let's try to suggest for Alex the most successful and unfortunate outcomes of event. ()
For the first time on the world stage, Alex declared himself in 2016, when in super heavy class and in the open weight class of the international tournament he left behind such eminent athletes as Peter Margarint, Vadim Stetsyuk, Plamen Dimitrov. Less than a year later, Alex repeated his result at the Zloty Tur 2017, and this is much more serious. This time he walked around Vitaly Laletin, Alexei Semerenko, Revaz Lutidze, Georgi Tsvetkov and Dmitry Silaev.
The prize place on the Zloty Tur gives the athlete such popularity, which, at the moment, can not offer any of the existing tournaments.
As Alex says: “After the medal on the Zloty Tur, I started to get to other competitions. The opportunity to compete on the anniversary Vendetta is an incredible level for an armwrestler, and after a won Vendetta, emotions overwhelmed me and the plan was 100% complete. So I recommend everyone to go to the Zloty Tur and fight, professional roads start there!”
Armfight took place on the anniversary Vendetta vs Scot Mendelson, let it not be the most formidable person in the world of armwrestling. But in March 2018, at the Arnold Classic Armwrestling Challenge, Scott pulled with Michael Todd, and after this fight Michael didn’t have enough strength to fight equally with Dmitry Trubin.
So, Alex is quite worthy to be among the reserve participants. And fortune helped him become a member.
What happens if Alex uses his chance in the Top 8 to the maximum? In the first round he will have to fight with the champions and it is obvious that the most successful outcome for him will be the fight against Rustam Babaiev or Genadi Kvikvinia, and Alex understands this: “I’m sure no one would like to pull with a pair of titans - Denis and Levan, I hope that all of the pullers would agree.
