Dmitry Trubin is the star of Kazakhstan armwrestling and one of the most popular Top-8 athletes. But Dmitry also keeps his form very unstable, sometimes he gains top condition and defeats Michael Todd in armfight or Andrey Pushkar in regular tournaments. And sometimes he loses in regional tournaments to middleweights. ()
Let’s suppose Dmitry can make his best shape, and during the tournament he will not only keep it at the proper level, but also improve his performance. In this case, the Kazakhstan champion will be able to give battle to any of the four of the group of champions. But still, perhaps, the best lot for Dmitry would be to get on Rustam Babaiev or Gennady Kvikvinia.
And even though Rustam considers Dmitry a convenient rival for himself, still the anthropometry of the hands suggests the opposite, and the fight with a huge number of fouls against Tim Bresnan is proof of that. In order to fight confidently against the Ukrainian armwrestler, Dmitry needs to work out the starting fight in the center of the table in order to prevent Rustam from jumping, or at least imposing the fight in hook. If Dmitry will not lose the starting movement, then the victory is likely to be behind him.
Gennady, as the last armfights show, has exactly the problem with rivals who pull toproll.
