I looked around to see what people write about our double World Champion, Adrian Zgórzyński. One site from Jaworzno released an article claiming that Adrian... breaks arms. The title is inviting, so whatever - as long as they're writing about our sport. ()
First, a piece from this article:
He advises all new armwrestlers to train regularly. "A schedule is something that will result in achieved goals," says Adrian and adds that it often happens to him that he doesn't want to train but he never gives up and is at the gym everyday to improve".
PeSzy: A banal question - how did you pick up armwrestling?
Adrian: It was quite simple and predictable. As a young boy, I was looking for some way to spend my time. Most of my friends went out to play football, I also did it for a while. But I always wanted to do something new and unfamiliar. I was very lucky to find Tytan Jaworzno (club) in my city. That's how my adventure started, thanks to a friend, Rafał Jakowczyk, who brought me to my first armwrestling training. It's been going on since 2006.
PeSzy: What next?
Adrian: I went to my first competition in 2007 - the 7th South Poland's Championships. Unfortunately, no success in the results. But surely, major personal success - first event, stress, experience. Then I went to a few more, I took the 4th place at the 3rd Wołomin County Championships, and then 3rd place at the 8th Polish Cup in Rumia in +78kg. For me it was an important event. I weighed 78kg and stood on the podium next to Grzegorz Nowak and Wiktor Hubczeńko. At the 8th Polish Championships in Kielce I took the 3rd place twice. It was definitely my biggest success for that time and it motivated me a lot.
PeSzy: Then, after 2008, you left armwrestling...
As of today, I still can't tell you why I did it. I felt that I should try something new once again and picked up martial arts.
