I wrote to Dmytro because he is a very experienced athlet and coach. My main motive was, my memory and understanding of your fears. I will explain it in a moment! April 26, 1986, it blown in Chernobyl. I was exactly 30 years old. I worked in the open air every day and also trained cycling and running outdoors. Nobody and nothing would force me to hide from "radiation" because I could not imagine a day without work, cycling and running. The fears that I would lose my shape were huge and I just had to go on. For now - I do not see consequences of radiation sickness on myself. That is why today I am able to understand the fears of young athletes that they will lose their strength, endurance and other motor skills. I understand perfectly. Well, let's get to the point!
PeSzy: Dmytro - what is the situation in Ukraine with armwrestling now?
Dmytro Bezkorovainyi Head of the Ukrainian Armwrestling Federation:
This year, the Ukrainian national championships were scheduled for April 25-26, but unfortunately, due to the quarantine, they did not take place. A new date has not been set yet. Today, neither transport system nor sports facilities operate in Ukraine. Workouts only at home. From May 12, quarantine should be weakened, but there are no deadlines and forecasts.
