Arthur Makarov is a talented young athlete from Russia. We all remember his phenomenal performance at the 2016 World Championship in Bulgaria, when he left no chances to his rivals and became world champion on his right hand in the category of up to 70 kg.
The Worlds was the end of last season. After a short rest, he began preparations for the new one:
"After the World Championship I took a short break and rested for almost a month. After taking part at the championship of the republic, I continued my training in the Volga Federal District".
Arthur managed to come in good form to the championship of Russia. It affected on the result, and the sportsmen became the best on his right hand again:
"Preparation for the championship of Russia was very diligent. In training, I worked through every detail. And for 2-3 months of preparation I came to the Russian championship in good shape. In my trainings I work both with iron and at the table with my partner.
At the Russian Championship I pulled well on my right hand and confidently passed my category, taking first place. In the struggle on the left hand everything turned out not so well, I took only 14 place".
Arthur also told a little about the organization of the Russian championship and shared his closest sports plans:
"This championship of Russia was held in a not very convenient place. From the railway station to the competition site we traveled almost 5 hours. But the competitions were well organized, despite we stopped not very close to the competition, the bus took us.
Now I will be preparing for the European Championships, I hope to come in my best shape and show a decent result".
At the European Championships, a lot of testing is waiting for Arthur, but we are sure that he will show a good result again and will stand on the pedestal.
