Mergl, tell us about yourself. What do you do besides armwrestling? How did you get into sports?
- I am veterinary student in Budapest, and every summer i visit my brother in Sweden. There I met with armwrestling first. I can say Anders Axklo was first who invite me to try this sport. After I found the Hungarian federation and compete here (but now I have my ban). Now I’m focusing only in PAL competitions.
What achievement in armwrestling do you consider the most important for yourself?
- My biggest achievement is to be the best in my category. Win or get medal at Zloty Tur soon. Also, I am interested in Vendetta with a same level guy at URPA system. My trainings are quite special, sometimes I do workouts 10 times per week. The training methods coming from my Zloty Tur winner friend. I thank him a lot.
Wasn't it too lazy to go across the world to China?
- China was one of the best trips in my life. Really interesting, new and instructive too.
