An excellent and at the same time average, ordinary and at the same time amazing movie... Brilliant and at the same time a poor actor … “Over The Top” (1987)... If not for this movie … If not for this actor... Igor Mazurenko would start only in bench press and Nuno Hampy Martins... would row in cold water. I just wanted to find out what's going on in Portuguese armwrestling in the era of the virus. I learned an interesting story and I present to our readers immediately. There is also a "Polish trace" in it, which I am very proud of! ()
PeSzy: How did you start your sports story?
Nuno Hampy Martins: So i started kayaking at 16/17 year old...
PeSzy: Apparently it has something to do with Polish sportsmen?
Nuno Hampy: Yes. The polish kayaking olympic team comes to train here in my town Vila Nova de Milfontes normally every year, and at the time I started there was a polish coach teaching in our team untill 1996, named Konrad Slaza if I remember correctly, but because we also did weight training i liked it better and just stick to weights, i didnt like to go to the cold water. With that i did bodybuilding, powerlifting and strongman competition. I was national champion powerlifting junior, was portugal strongest man 1 year, Iberian champ competition in 2002, was in international strongman team in Hungary in 2002 and 2004, some more powerlifting and strongman competitions, and 2 bodybuilding competitions that I hated because I don’t like to be hungry, All this before the age of 34.
PeSzy: And then you did something else?
Nuno Hampy: Then i needed a change because its not very healthy to have alot of muscle weight in a 176 cm frame so i stopped weight training and had to get something else to take place of my objectives, that i really loved so i whent to a Martial Art.
