Evgeny Prudnik pulled at the Ukrainian Championship in the category of up to 90 kg. He confidently took the first two places and was selected to the national team for participation in international tournaments. ()
Evgeny began to train for the next season barely back from the World Championship in Bulgaria:
"I began to prepare for the new season immediately after taking part at the Worlds-2016. I did not have time to rest, I continued to train. I worked on bugs and fixed them. Also during the recovery period after the injury, I got a few weak points, I also worked on and dealt with them. And at the World Championship I checked myself in the fight against good athletes for readiness".
Speaking about Evgeny’s fights at the Ukrainian Championship, he is in good shape. He wrestled with the strongest athletes of the country, experienced himself and concluded:
"At the Ukrainian championship I was very surprised by young Igor Okara, he pulled well on both hands. While pulling on the left hand with him, I felt that he is strong not only in toprol, but also fights well in hook. But he has weaknesses, I found them and used them. He's still young enough, so I think he will become a champion later. I was also surprised that he gave a good fight on the right hand with Ivan Lukyanchuk, because Ivan has a very strong hook. I would also like to note the fight between Ivan Lukyanchuk and Petr Margarint on the right hand, we all watched the fight, and it was interesting. I noticed that Petr did not fight Ivan with his crown technique – a hook, he showed the fight with biceps, stretched out his angle and won. If the struggle between them was a clean hook, it would be very interesting, and I do not know who would have come out as the winner.
