Croatian team took part at the championship “Judgement day”, which was held in Budapest last weekend. ()
President of Croatian Armwrestling Federation Alexandar Jakovac told us about the team success and plans.
Croatian team took part in the Judgment day tournament in Budapest. How do you like the competition?
– I think our team was very successful at the “Judgement day”. We brought 15 competitors to the championship and they show good results. Especially well was one our heavyweight sportsman Andrija Raguž. He is a young guy, who is only 9 months in armwrestling. We didn’t expect so much from him but he made 1st place in his class. Total we have 9 medals – two silvers for Drazen Kogl, two bronzes for Valentino Hegol in disabled class, Andrija Raguž - gold and bronze, Marijan Harča - gold and silver, Jasenko Miletić – bronze.
We are satisfied with the result because our team is very young. Croatia is 7 years in armwrestling, we have only 11 clubs and 200-250 sportsmen in the country.
