The article about Alexey Voevoda is on the first page of The Moscow Times since 17 January 2014. Alexey did a very good job promoting armwrestling:
“I grew up in the mountains and I would always climb trees with the other children,” Voyevoda said in a telephone interview. “I was the fastest of the little tree-climbing monkeys. That is how I became strong.”
“Arm wrestling is a very serious thing,” Voyevoda said. “Many more countries practice arm wrestling than bobsleigh. I plan to return to arm wrestling after the Sochi Games. I have many options.”

“I want to serve my country,” he said. “I want to be worthy of representing Russia. The Sochi Games are close to the heart of all Russian athletes because they are being held in our country. But I feel this even more strongly because I grew up here. This is my city.”
“Arm wrestling has helped me a lot in my bobsledding career,” Voyevoda said. “My role on the team is to stop the bobsleigh. I do this with the strength I have acquired through arm wrestling.”
