On Sunday, December 23, it will be 40 days since that tragic day when Andrei Pushkar left us - the World Champion in armwrestling among professionals and amateurs, a mentor who, by his age of 33, managed to grow a whole generation of world and European champions. In addition to his passion for sports, Andrei was an excellent husband, father and friend. Together with his family, the entire world-wide armwrestling community grieves for him.
On November 14, 2018, a car accident claimed the life of the Great Champion when he was heading to the airport to fly to the main event of his sports career - a duel for which he had been preparing for over 6 years. The fight did not take place, but in our hearts Andrey will always remain the unbeatable World Champion.
The ceremony of commemoration will be held on Sunday, December 23, at the cemetery of the city of Kremenets - Andrew’s hometown. To honor the memory of the legendary athlete hundreds of people will come- his family, friends and students.
Let us also remember those moments when Andrew was with us and support his loved ones in these difficult days!
