The European Championship for the Disabled is far behind, but still we receive letters from its participators with their impressions. Armwrestling gives hope, goal and second life to most of the athletes with disabilities and even long after each event they keep sharing their thoughts. Here is one open letter to Anna Mazurenko from Turkish National team member. ()
I would like to write about my experiences in 2018 European Disabled ARMWRESTLING Championship.
Generally, it can be said that hosting of Sofia, Bulgaria was great. Turkish National team was successful in championship; however it can be possible to be the second instead of third, if the team would be more experienced. It was the first experience for six of the team members. Although the results are satisfactory, I believe that the Turkish National Team will get more successful results in future championships.
Arm wrestling becomes more popular but unfortunately, it is not supported very much. For example I do not have a coach and also a training place. As a result, I have to work by myself as an amateur athlete.
