I invite you to watch the video from years ago! It talks about the beginnings of Polish armwrestling. How did the big and strong Igor lose to a guy who looks like a cyclist? Armwrestling is armwrestling - here, pure strength and weight are not enough. Enjoy! ()
The video was made in 2011. Igor responds. So how old is "Złoty Tur"? Złoty Tur is a club in Poland, and it's also a world-renowned tournament that Igor created. Listen to this!
Igor Mazurenko weighed 140 kg back then but I believe it was even more. On top of that, he was insanely strong. There was no machine he wouldn't max, and he often even added more to his exercises. He trained one bicep on machines that were supposed to be used with both. I saw it myself a few times. He was insanely strong and... younger, which also matters.
Somehow, news of him reached Lviv. A rival appeared. Igor accepted and went to Ukraine, but then he saw the rival. Grygorij Bondaruk was much shorter and twice lighter than him. A very nice guy, physically - a cyclist.
