When you see representatives of the Shardara club from Kazakhstan on the podium of the World Championship in Turkey this year, remember that success does not come overnight and is unreachable without adequate conditions, which Shardara guys and girls have from the early years. When other juniors only start training at the age of 13-14, Kazakhstan children already have about seven years of training behind. ()
When I decided to visit a small town of Shardara in the south of Kazakhstan, I had no idea that I would find there an arm-wrestling club of such a level of organization.
Namely, in a new club area of about 1000 square meters there I saw about 60 trainees and 10 coaches.
From conversation with Arman Carsibayev, club president, I realized that in the club there were 30 professional coaches who train more than 500 armwrestlers: mostly children 7-15 years old.
