I started armwrestling in 2008. Then I lived in the Batumi Orphan Children Asylum where the President of Armwrestling Federation of Ajara Gocha Shavadze arrived one day. He was looking for children with the talents for professional sports. He asked the director to help him to find the strongest child. So I passed the testing and he noticed the strength of my hand. He took me to the university to my future coach Temur Lipartashvili. Timur also tested me and said that I will be able to achieve significant success within the next year.
I immediately fell in love with armwrestling because I got it right away and was winning a lot from the start. My life has changed for the better. My coach played a huge role in my development as a professional armwrestler. He helped me find my way, he's like a father to me.
