On June 8, a very interesting armwrestling tournament was held in Grudziądz (Poland), in the hometown of champion Marlena Wawrzynyak. It was a big championship, which included a children's tournament, a tournament for professionals in the open category, a competition called „Arm-Triathlon” (the first in the world) and two matches called „Vendetta Top Arm-The Best”. In this fight that two athletes, who were probably known not only in the Polish arena, pulled in five rounds. ()
Dawid Łapa (Wilki Międzychód team) against Maciej Gralak (Arm Fanatic Sport Grudziądz team). Maciej is older, he has more medals, more experience. Currently, he is at the peak, it is possible (and necessary) to say that now is his time of the greatest achievements. And then keep the top as long as possible.
Dawid is younger, he has many medals, but he is only on the way to his great sporting years. At the beginning of this road.
What is important about it?
Well, now I have to write that para-arm wrestlers participated in this duel...
But I will not write!
One scene, one sport!
Armwrestling is one and it doesn't matter who jumps up to the table, who fits on crutches or on a wheelchair!
It doesn’t matter that after winning someone does a flip, and it will be difficult for another to get down from the platform.
But to the point: the duel is scheduled for five rounds, the weight is agreed - 65 kg. First, look at Maciej Gralak, in the evening before the fight. He seems bigger than when I last saw him. The muscles of shoulders are fuller and more prominent. His back is much bigger. If he gained, then definitely five kilograms of strong muscle mass. Before the Polish Championship Maciej had to follow the diet, although in any case he looked good. But this is not bodybuilding! I think that strength training for this fight and freedom in the diet gave him a new portion of strength. Because I never worry about his technique, it is superb.
On the other hand, Dawid looked a little more „modest” than usual. This could bother his fans. Somehow we could not see his confidence. I could be wrong, but something bothered me too.
On the page of the Wilki Międzychód club, I read that "we made a small mistake in preparation, discovered this mistake a week before the fight, and it was too late to correct".
Dawid said after the battle that there were not enough two elements to work on.
Let's go to a fight ...
At first we had wonderful weather on a beautiful beach, then ... clouds, and we had to quickly hide under the roof and dry.
