As many armwrestlers are aware, Genadi Kvikvinia broke his left arm during WorldArm 2017, but he still managed to compete next day with the right hand and took the 2nd place in the Senior Men +110 kg Right. See ► RESULTS: WORLDARM 2017: 39th World Armwrestling Championships 2017 (WAF)
Genadi Kvikvinia is now in Rumia, Poland before his Armfigt Vendetta with Tim Bresnan. Yesterday, I asked Giorgi Chochia to make a small interview with Genadi. And today (17 Nov 2017) in the morning Genadi answered these questions, this interview is very fresh. 🙂
1. How went the left arm operation ?
Genadi Kvikvinia: I haven’t done the operation just yet cause of upcoming Vendetta 🙂 I shall do it after my return.
2. How went the recovery, do you take pain killers ?
Genadi Kvikvinia: I still have pain but will fixate my left hand so it won’t get in the way. I had way worse situation at WAF but still managed to deliver it, I won’t let it interfere.
3. Could you do proper training due to your left arm injury ?
Genadi Kvikvinia: Of course injury got in my way with preparations, but I had too great a desire to compete in this event, so despite all the obstacles I managed to do the best I could do. Overall, I’m in a good shape and ready to fight!
4. Do you feel confident ? Do you believe you will win ?
Genadi Kvikvinia: I accepted the challenge and did everything that was in my power to be as prepared as I could possibly be and end result is that I’m well-conditioned, rest will be shown in an upcoming battle 😀
Many thanks to Genadi Kvikvinia and Giorgi Chochia for this interview.
