Before the beginning of the second stage, the Top-8 participants will have one more draw, now inside each group. What is the reason? ()
The first stage of the Top-8 is over. As you remember, pairs for this stage were formed by drawing lots, according to the conditions of which the athletes from the champions group were drawing odd numbers, and the athletes from the group of contenders were drawing even. Thus, in each pair there was a champion and a contender.
Before the beginning of the second stage, the Top-8 participants will have one more draw, now inside each group. What is the reason? There are several.
First, we keep the element of surprise.
Secondly, it is about justice. Now each group holds its own draw and you do not need to draw even and odd numbers, but just everything in a row - from one to four.
In addition, we are thinking of bringing sportsmen together in one place for this draw and to meet with armwrestlers, hold seminars and open training sessions, and work out the special entertaining program.
