Often in the middle categories, the struggle for medals becomes the most spectacular and tough. What can show armwrestlers of 70 kg, 75 kg and 80 kg categories at this European Championships? ()
Senior Men 70 kg
The current champion on the left hand: Valentin Gospodinov (Bulgaria)
The current champion on the right hand: Khetag Dzitiev (Russia)
At the 2016 European Championships, Valentin Gospodinov showed a good level and became a champion left-handed. At the World Championships, Valentin became the third, after Khetag Dzitiev and Emil Amirshadyan. As we already know, this year Khetag has changed the weight category, so it is more likely that the fight for first place on the left hand will be developed between Valentin and Emil and taking into account the results of the Worlds, in our forecast we will give a slight advantage to the sportsman from Armenia. We also want to remind you that Daniel Procopciuk from Moldova will take part in this category, which from this year already fights in the senior category. Daniel will be the "dark horse" of this category, and we assume that he will surprise us all. On the right hand, the absence of Khetag will also affect the prize three. On the right hand we predict a good result from Tabriz Safarov from Azerbaijan and Emil Amirshadyan, but the clear leader and the main contender for the victory will be the Russian athlete Arthur Makarov.
