The competition took place in Yambol on 17-19 of March. We had two weigh-ins on Friday evening and Saturday morning. The opening ceremony was on Saturday. The championship lasted two days – first day left and second right hand.
439 competitors from 39 clubs participated in the championship
In each category there were interesting fight, but the fight, which everybody expected not only in Bulgaria but also in the whole Armwrestling world was the one between Krasimir Kostadinov and Sasho Andreev. They met on the table in the open category on left and right hand.
There were not big surprises at the championship. The athletes were very well prepared. May be a surprise we can call the fact the Sasho Andreev changed his weight category. He decided to compete in Senior Men 90 kg.
All the World and European champions from Bulgaria were in their best shape and took the gold in their categories. Also I would like to say that we witnessed very well prepared and strong Juniors and Youth, promising soon to reach the European and World Titles.
Bulgarian team will take part at the Europeans for sure. We are working hard in order to be in shape for the EAC and to reach the gold in as much category as possible.
