A couple of years ago, on the Internet, a photograph depicting a young man struggling with his right hand, in a T-shirt of Oleg Zhokh flew widely. Along with her, a rumor began that Oleg really was pulling on the right at the Ukrainian Championship. Then it was just a teammate who borrowed a T-shirt, and at the 2017 championship Oleg really became at the table to try the power of his right hand.

Oleg, for the first time in a long time you fought on the right hand. How does it feel?

- Yes, but ... I lost the championship of Ukraine (laughs - Ed. Ed.). But I realized that I can really well train my right hand and win. This defeat made me angry.

Do you specialize your training for each hand separately?

- Actually, I practice my left arm more accentuated. I was preparing for armfights, serious competitions, the Zloty Tur and its open class. And the right hand was an auxiliary, and I trained it for balance. Now I want to put emphasis on it. I think, probably in a year I can normally pull on the right.

In the gym I can compete on my right hand, but the lack of competitive experience still affects. Perhaps, if I pulled more, I would feel more confident now. But so far the left hand still remains in the priority.

Oleg, what's on your future plans?

- Now I'm ready to participate in any competitions.

Does this mean that we will see you at the European Championships?

- Yes, of course, I'm going to pull there. I am now in very good shape, I will fight in the 80 kg category. About the nearest tournaments – I’d like go to Italy, just to pull and relax.

It is worth noting that Oleg has all the conditions to bring his right hand to a high competitive level and show a good fight. We wish Oleg to reach success in this difficult business!
