After the fight in the second stage of the Top-8, Evgeny Prudnik noted that the fight in the referee’s grip with Vitaly Laletin was not in completely equal conditions for both athletes. What is the matter? ()
Referee’s grip is the starting position in which the opponents are in the most equal conditions: the athletes’ shoulders are parallel to the table, the elbows are on the pillows in the same positions, the center and the front are flat. The referee closes the grip, given that wrists are also straight, not supinated, and the phalanges are open. There remains one “white spot” - a failed wrist or a stretched wrist, which depends on the length of the hands of the opponents.
Evgeny Prudnik declared this problem, indicating that during the referee’s grip Vitaliy Laletin’s arm was closed with a failed wrist, so Evgeny was set in the same position. The difference is that for Vitaly this situation is familiar, the fight with a failed wrist is quite suitable for him, and such a start is absolutely inconvenient for Evgeny.
