It seems that a line-up coming to the second tournament in Jabłonka Orawska would be rather international. The organizers have applications from Check Republic, Slovakia and Russia and probably Hungary. ()
– “Everyone asks about Andrey Pushkar’s presence”- says the originator of the tournament Jakub Janczy. – “We’re not sure, as not only he can still be resting after twelve rounds in Las Vegas and long home flight. But the list of the players, including titled ones from Poland is exceeding from day to day”. Last year’s medalist Jerzy Kwiatkowski, despite shoulder injury announced that he’d defend the medal and that he wanted to win gold. There are many juniors, the list of amateurs and seniors 85kg class is already full.
The trophy is of course the Orawa belt for the Champion, but there are also cups and many souvenirs for the participants and fans. See how neatly folders, business cards, leaflets, stickers and posters! The stage… patterned on the one at the World Cup, in front of the community centre where the tournaments are going to take place, five masts with the flags of the event, in a word revelation.
