WAC 78 kg - DIMITRIS FILIKIDIS # Armwrestling #

You have known him very well for many years. Leading athlete of the Greek team. A very important person in Greek armwrestling. A few days ago, Igor Mazurenko called Dimitris with a proposal to participate in the WAC in Dubai. ()

PeSzy: DIMITRIS, how did you react to Igor's call and offer to participate in the Dubai?

DIMITRIS: I accepted Igor Mazurenko's proposal with great joy, and immediately started training. I understand that the level will be very high and I have to be as good as possible.

PeSzy: Do you know your rivals?

DIMITRIS: I know most of the athletes and I have competed with some of them before.

PeSzy: What technique do you focus on?

DIMITRIS: My strengths I think are the side press, my weakness is endurance and that's what I focus on the most.

PeSzy: You can choose not to respond.

What is more important to you: money or fame?

DIMITRIS: Certainly the most important thing is the prestige because athletes with a long history participate and to win such

a tournament is a very big feat.


PeSzy: Thanks for the interview!

DIMITRIS: Greetings to Greek armwrestlers
