Michael, you showed great results on Arnold Classic Armwrestling Challenge. How do you feel?
- I feel amazing! It really meant a lot to win the Arnold and to beat him in the process!
Was it your first ACAC?
- No, I've competed there many times and my highest finish was 2nd!
Was it difficult for you?
- Yes, I'm not 100% healed from my injury and I was wasn't sure I could win!
My hardest fight was with Dmitry Trubin. He was my strongerst rival. He is a very strong and smart puller, I have great respect for him!
What was the most interesting fight?
- For me, the match between Dmitry Trubin and Mirtaleh Aslanov, because I knew I had to face the winner!
I was very impressed with Aslanov, he showed a lot of power against Mike Ayello and Chris Chandler.
You told you are going to pull in Italy. Are you ready?
- As I said I'm not quite 100%, but I look forward to the challenge!
We will be looking for Michael’s success at the Supermatches, so stay tuned with armpower.net!
