For unforeseen reasons, Gennadiy Kvikvinia refused to pull in the Top-8.
“At urgent pace, we had to find a replacement for Gennady. Based on the fact that American athletes are bound by contracts with another organization and cannot fight on our events, we looked for a candidate among Asian and European armwrestlers. Our choice is Kydyrgali Ongarbaev”, - said PAL President Igor Mazurenko.
Kydyrgali Ongarbayev is a young Kazakhstan armwrestler, already known outside of Asia. He has been in arm wrestling since the early 2000s, there are dozens of prize medals from amateur and professional tournaments in his bank.
“I am confident that Kydyrgali will show a high level of struggle. It already weighs about 100 kg, so it will be able to perform on a par with Evgeny Prudnik and Rustam Babayev”, - said Mazurenko.
