Evgeniy Fursal (PZPI-22-4) 11.11.2023 competed at the Estonian Classic Bench Press Championship among youth in the city of Kilingi-Nõmme in the weight category up to 83 kg. He showed his best result in the bench press – 110 kg, and took 5th place. Since Evgeniy is not a citizen of Estonia, he believed that he would not be allowed to participate in the competition taking into account the result, and he decided not to reduce the extra 2 kg of his own weight, although in a smaller category he had every chance of getting into the top three. But this is not the last competition. Therefore, we congratulate Evgeniy on his good performance at the national championship and look forward to new achievements in powerlifting!
