Meet 25 year old Maksim Taubin, we have chosen “Maks” because his passion, dedication and drive has moved him through some serious hurdles in life. Maks is a Russian Immigrant that came to the US at the age of 12, he has since earned a degree in Nutrition from Florida State University. Maks fell in love with the sport of Armwrestling back in 2012 when he got 3rd place at the Europa Armwrestling Championships (novice class). He is relatively new to the sport and after speaking with Maks about whats he’s been through, his outlook on life and positive attitude the committee, Bill and I (Robert Drenk) have decided he’s the ONE! Maks is the 1st of 5 to get a paid trip to UAL 8 – Congrats Maks you’ve touched us with your Story and outlook on life. See you at UAL 8
