Spirit of antiquity! # Armwrestling #

Greece – the cradle of sports! Kalokagatia, the Greek philosophy of noble and ethical conduct, combining beauty with goodness, gave rise to ancient sport. Subsequently, the First Olympic Games held in Greece in 1896 resurrected modern sport. And then you know. ()

The IFA World Armwrestling Championships planned for next year will be held in Greece and I (I don't know about you?) see it as a symbol. It's true that there was no armwrestling at the ancient games...

About the just ended championships:

The appearance of our country in the World of Malaysia. I think was very good. We were seven athletes and got 12 medals in total. Our juniorss also participated in the senior categories and won several victories, and the surprise for us was to see our sixteen-year-old athlete Ioannis Pantchenko win third place in the senior category.

About Ioannis Pantchenko:

He was born in Greece to Russian and Greek parents. He came to the gym when he was 12 years old and really liked the sport of armwrestling. I can say that he is one of the most hardworking athlet, very persistent in his goal, he trains furiously and fulfills the entire training plan I give him and more. He is a high school student.
