One of the most interesting Ukrainian events will not take place this year. The Lion Cup – FitMax Challenge, also known as “Lions Cup” has been canceled this year. This tournament took place for three consecutive years. In 2013 it was an international event, people came there from Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, Germany.
We could organize a one-arm-only event, but we don’t want to lower our standards. We’re hoping that next year the Cup will return, bigger than ever – said Bogdan Ivanitski, organizer and president of the Lvov chapter of Ukrainian Armwrestling Federation.
According to Ivanitski, preparations for this year’s edition of the Cup were going on for some time. But due to the difficult political and economic situation of the country, most of those preparations came to a dead end, and so the tournament was cancelled.
