This Sunday we will see the Top 8 2020 passing match between Dave Chaffee and Deyvidas Rimkus. What can a young Lithuanian athlete contrast with an experienced American? ()
Dave Chaffee is perhaps one of the athletes who were so awaited by armwrestling fans in the Top 8 +105 kg tournament. He agreed to participate in the second season, but the pool of champions was already formed, so he can only get into the pool of contenders. Given the current conditions, the athlete, who took a rather high place in the absolute category of the Zloty Tour of 2019 – Deivydas Rimkus – also claims to this place.
Deivydas is a born heavyweight, at Zloty Tur he was one of the biggest athletes. In addition to impressive dimensions, he also possessed sufficient strength, which allowed him lost only to Dmitry Silaev, taking 2nd place in the category. In the open class he took 5th place, but the athletes who took 3-4 places fall into the Top 8 up to 95kg, Krasimir Kostadinov, who became the second, has his own transitional match, and Dmitry Silaev, who won the tournament, immediately got a place in the pool applicants.
As for the chances of winning, in this fight, Dave Chaffee looks like a favorite here. But is it all so clear? First of all, the favorite is Dave we remembered from his difficult fights with the best armwrestlers in the world.
