How’s this for talent: Evgeniy told IronMind that he’s never really trained his grip specifically, but is going to start now and the 31-year old Master of Sport in armwrestling has his eye on certifying on the Captains of Crush No. 3.5 gripper.
Evgeniy is 187 cm tall (about 6’ 1-1/2”) and weighs 105 kg (about 231 lb.). A telecommunication manager by profession, his hobbies include snowboarding, bicycling and photography, as well as armwrestling.
Once again, IronMind would like to thank IronMind’s official referee on this attempt, Alexei Ovsiannikov, and Oleg Chernov, from AerRus, for all his liaison work related to this attempt.
Congratulations, Evgeniy - your name has been added to the official certification list for the Captains of Crush No. 3 Gripper!
