Tell us about yourself. How did you come to armwrestling? Why did you choose this sport? Do you have an idol?
- The reason why I chose this sport was because I watched my friends armwrestle in different contests. So, I wanted to try it out myself, and that went pretty well. I really liked it and my progress was really good. My goal back then was to become the best armwrestler in Lithuania and I did just that.
