An excerpt from Sergey Pikulskiy's (SBG wrestling coach) interview for Match TV channel. - What was your wrestling career?
- In 2003, the last competition, before that, was the freestyle champion of the country in cadets and the second in classics. The injury strongly prevented me - I was 19 years old, I performed in the weight of 54–55 kg, I was cutting the weight incorrectly. Now they eat right, they are brought to the competition correctly, and both strength and muscle mass remain, and I have exhausted my body weight.
- Made a throw “poker”. There, if I throw, and the opponent defends himself, then I rest with my hand and fall. It turns out a strong jerk, and the vertebra just went inside. Step up to a wheelchair.
-In such stories, there is either a savior doctor or a doctor who sees his task as calming, not curing.
- I did an MRI, the doctor looked at the picture, looked at me and said: “The most heavy thing you will lift in life is a kettle with water to make coffee or tea, you will not have a wife or children.” I was a little shocked, didn't know what to do, because it’s not any stranger who tells me, but a doctor. Only imagine in 19 years to hear this. It was too hard, the first couple of months was almost depressed, because it was tough, if not cruel. I was so used to training that at five o'clock in the evening, training time, the body began to tremble because I didn't know what to do now. How could I have recovered, continued to train further, pump my back and look for new ways. Today I have a wife, my son is five years old. And I still fight and train with world champions. And I still remember the words of the doctor about the kettle and coffee.
It is impossible not to be inspired with Sergey's will power! A true person and a true professional! 💪
Need to say thanks to the coach for his students.
I'm sure his son has a great future!
