Kydyrgali Ongarbaev is another athlete who came to replace the retired in the Top-8. What does Kydyrgali think about this and how will he prepare in such a short time? ()
Kydyrgali, when you received an invitation to participate in the Top 8, how did you feel?
- It was an unexpected turn for me, and a very big responsibility. Since I am the first athlete from Shardara who has received such honor and good luck. This is a historical moment for me, for Kazakhstan and for my club.
Are you satisfied with the opponent you got?
- I used to see him pulling. He is 50 kg heavier and a very strong, huge and talented fighter with character. And the rest - the table will show.
Time is short, how will you prepare? Will you make any radical changes in training?
- After the championship of Kazakhstan, which took place in the city of Shymkent, I had a rest, I did not know that I would pull in the Top-8. When I found it out - an hour later I started training.
