Vladislav will represent Russia in the “bench press” category.
The coach Vladimir Reshetnikov names his pupil a true Russian hero with character and cast-iron will: “Two years ago, Vladislav started with light weights and lifted barbell only 50 times. He became successful, he felt in love with this sport, and we began to move forward! Our aim is not only Vladislav to become a champion, we want to prove boys and girls all over the world that they should never give up. Whatever affliction you have, survive it! No matter how difficult it is, don’t give up, and everything will turn out!”
One of the strongest people on the planet, Alexander Muromsky, is amazed with the result of a young strong man. “A fantastic combination of youth and endurance!” — he noted. — As an 11-time record holder of the Guinness Book of Records, I can say that all the conditions to set up a new record have been met, and we are waiting for a positive decision. It is symbolic that the record was set in Artek, in the Crimea, and we hope that it will be pointed in the certificate.
The necessary package of documents will be sent to the jury of the Guinness Book of Records. The decision will be made within three months.
