We saw Ermes Gasparini at last time on spring 2017, when he was pulling Michael Todd and won him. Before this fight he crashed Zloty Tur’s open class. And then he had a break for two years. ()
Recently we noticed Ermes shared some pictures from his workouts. Does it mean that he comes back? What happened with one of the strongest armwrestlers?
You was absent in armwrestling for long time. Was it because of health issues?
– I have been absent from competitions for almost 2 years. I had a problem on my right wrist, I did a surgical operation here in Verona but it was not successful. I had to do another operation in Milan and they managed to solve the problem. This problem bothered me since I was 13 and now I'm fine.
How are you going to come back to workouts and tournaments?
– For now, I have resumed training. I plan to I start pulling again on the next competition with the left arm, and when the right wrist will be recovered recovered to 100% I will also pull right-handed. I think my next tournament will be Super Match here in Italy if I feel good.
