He has no equals in his country, co he’ll go abroad to look for challenges. ()
Alex Kukuło, student of first year of National Physical Education University is undefeated in armwrestling. He’s 18 years old and the best in his weight category in the whole of Belarus.
I started training sports by chance – recalls Alex. – In 9th class I weighed about a 100 kg, so I started thinking about my looks, my body shape in particular. A friend “dragged” me to a gym, where I’ve met Sergey Veremchuk, who later became my coach. The beginnings were rough, I was not very physically developed – I couldn’t do one pullup! I’ve worked out full speed ahead for a year and a half, I listened to my coach and when the time came, I haven’t left the podium once! After an unprecedented series of victories on the national level, I’ve decided to reach higher – become the champion of the world. No one can stop me now!
What’s the secret of such speedy progress? Even Alex himself is a little surprised at his own development.
It’s like gambling – says Alex. – with every training I wanted more. This urge made me stronger, made me progress faster. I may have a natural talent, and I’m lucky to have spotted it early. Other guys in my category have to work much harder than me.
It’s worth remembering that Alex does only the basics for most of the year.
