Igor Mazurenko shared his thoughts on the effectiveness of the first stage of the Top 8 for each athlete. ()
According to the results of the Top 8 finals, it can be said that Levan Saginashvili did a tremendous job, entered the pedestal invincible, received several contracts from local companies, and participated in several television programs. Unfortunately, not everyone managed to repeat his success.
The eighth place in the Top 8 project is occupied by Rustam Babayev. Rustam with a weight of 95-100 kg could not do anything in the tournament: in the first stage he lost to Evgeny Prudnik, then to Tim Bresnan, and in the third stage everyone thought that he would easily pass Alex Kurdecha, but this did not happen. But Rustam Babayev goes to the Top 8 in the 95 kg category, and next season we will see his skills in this class.
Rustam Babaev works as a fitness trainer, this limits his communication with sponsors a little, as it takes the time that Rustam could spend on self-promotion. So Rustam also did not receive offers of cooperation with the media.
The seventh position in the project is occupied by Alex Kurdecha. Alex is from Ukraine and has been living in Warsaw for a long time. Before armwrestling, he was engaged in strongman and American football. His anthropometrics is very good for armwrestling. If he began his training with this sport, then he would have succeeded. But Alex came to armwrestling relatively recently.
