Top 8 project participant Alex Kurdecha summed up the results of 2019. ()
Alex, please tell us what were your goals for 2019? Are they all done?
- The goals in terms of armwrestling were, of course, related to the Top 8 project: to maximize yourself as an athlete, learn something new, improve technique and improve in terms of strength and endurance. All this will help in further sport development. The Top 8 project was very cool. He gave us the opportunity to visit other countries, see other armwrestlers, talk with them, watch how fast our sport is developing and how many of us are around the world.
What is the biggest surprise that happened in 2019 for you?
- This is certainly the first stage. After it, I concluded that armwrestling is so interesting because you can not rely on any one strong side in it, but you need to be multifaceted, be prepared in strength, technically and psychologically. And the duel at the first stage of Top 8 taught me this, gave me food for thought and the opportunity to work on specific areas in order to improve myself. I needed this lesson. After all, it is important not just to win, but to become better.
