You know Arkadiusz Kwiatkowski very well. "Samson" Marklowice - and all's clear! I think, however, that you don't know the sports he's into well enough. Yes! Because it's not just armwrestling! It's one more discipline, and surprisingly it comes with a table as well. Enjoy! ()
Every armwrestling competitor, trainer and referee live with a passion for the sport and they set their lives around it. More often than not the passion transfers to their entire families as well. But it sometimes happens that some of "ours" have also a second, often "hidden", passion. For example: Igor Mazurenko has been flying small airplanes for years. I once watched his performance from the airport and almost sh*t my pants from fear. Alex Kurdecha, as you probably know, plays american football, Mariusz Grochowski is an alpinist and a sailor. Damian Zaorski does extreme running, Anders Axklo lifts stones and hunts. And so, today's hero, Arkadiusz Kwiatkowski... plays pool! Precisely - he recently got back to his old passion. Of course, he won't leave armwrestling!
Arkadiusz Kwiatkowski: competitor, Polish Championships medalist, trainer in Samson Marklowice, the founder and chairman of this club, armwrestling referee.
PeSzy: Arek, what is it all about with billiards? I'm asking because you showed us pictures by the table but it looks somewhat different!
Arkadiusz Kwiatkowski: I used to play billiards for 20 years in a no-longer-existing club Jednorożec (eng. Unicorn) in Rybnik. Over a year ago I picked it up again and signed into the Billiards Academy in Wodzisław Śląski.
I combine the two disciplines even though it might seem like they exclude each other at first glance - but I see an "added value" in it. I love the two disciplines and I think it's worth it to train other sports as well.
