Milos Zeljic: «Sport in our country is gaining more and more importance and I, as a representative of the Serbian armwrestling union, am very glad to be a part of it.» ()
For the last three months, the Serbian armwrestling union has visited municipalities where they have never heard of the sport of armwrestling and held promotions and tournaments in them. In three months, we did 2-3 sports promotions, 6 tournaments (two of which were major international) and several guest appearances on various televisions. Almost every week we did a tournament in a different place. Mladen Jovanovic aka Marjanovic, together with me and a few other friends, participated in the organization of these tournaments.
He judged, worked in tournaments, competed ... he proved himself on several occasions. It was testing for him. And as the most successful member of the club for his 18th birthday, he got the chance to prove himself as the president of the sports club Orlovi from Majur (Sabac). I believe that he will contribute a lot to our sport, considering that he has been in it for 3 years and that he has really improved a lot and loved this sport. David and Mario, our strongest students, who started high school this month, helped a lot in these tournaments.
I would especially like to point out our most promising small competitor (if you can say so) Andrej Dakic, who has been training with me for almost two years. He only turned twelve at the end of July, now he has started the sixth grade of primary school and he is about 180 cm tall, about 80 kg. He reached me in height, he has the same arm length as me, a very big hand, fingers longer than mine. Already at the age of ten in the fourth grade of elementary school he was taller than his teacher and his father.
