During World Championships in Gdynia he was great announcer. Crowd was amazed with the sound of his voice. Will Axklo be the new face of armrestling? ()
Grzegorz Karbowski: The World Championship in Gdynia was the biggest and the finest armwrestling tournament ever., according to everyone who has seen it. You were an important part of the show. One can say, you became a face ot the Championship. Can you compare it to any other experience in your career?
Anders Axklo:It was a great privilege to as involved as I was, and to be associated with such a great success. I have worked with many different shows and TV-productions, and I dont like to compare apples and pears, but obviously it is a highlight.
GK: Presenting the fights and events in two languages was something new. You had a Russian partner. Did you know Olesya before?
AA: I have met Olessa before, but not worked together with her. She works with impressive professionalism, and I believe there is even more we can do to work bilingually in the future.
English and Russian are the two big languages of armwrestling, and should always be present.
GK: Actually you came to Gdynia not only to present the Championship. You came to win it too. And you did it! Did the successes of Swedish team satisfy you?
AA: We are extremely proud of our team, and the fact that we brought almost 70 armwrestlers who all travelled and competed at their own expense. Finishing in 5th place in the overall nations points is
what we expected of our athletes, and they delivered.
GK: You play at last three roles. You are a presenter, the chief of Swedish team and a sport commentator as well. Let's now talk about sports. Actually what happened at the Championship. Lest's name some heros of it..
AA: The overall level is so incredible that it is almost impossible to point out any individuals. Possibly Janis Amolins and Evgeny Prudnik stand out, for winning and dominating categories that it before hand looked like there were so many that could have won.
GK: Who surprised you the most?
AA: For me personally it was Jonas Hellströms win against Tokarev in the -110.
