It's time to take stock of the year. The past season of 2019 was full of different situations. It was a watershed year. But, fortunately, there were also many great sporting events. We did not complain about the lack of emotions. Today Anastasia Kisilyova writes about the most impressive fights. ()
This year I was lucky to see a lot of fights. Some were passing, others - decided one’s sports career.
I looked at most of these fights through the viewfinder of the camera, and only Zloty Tur and the Top 8 finals I was able to observe “directly”. I want to note the most important, in my opinion, meetings of this year.
The fight between Levan Saginashvili and Vitaly Laletin in the third stage of Top 8. I consider it important not because it is the final match of the project. The struggle of these two giants marked the boundaries of their strength and skills. The fight made it clear to us that Laletin still has a large supply of space for development, and Saginashvili has a serious technical arsenal and hones his ability to think strategically. In fact, this fight sets the tone for the second Top 8 project in the open weight class for next year.
Match of Engin Terzi and Mindaugas Tarasaitis as it was the first ranking armfight. It rarely happens that a duel of athletes from light categories attracts so much attention. And in fact, this fight turned out to be very beautiful and technical.
