Bronze medalist at the 2021 World Championships and current national champion Akhtem Zakirov called the Spartakiad “a way to test yourself and confirm your leadership”.
Zakirov became the winner of the Spartakiad in weight up to 51 kg.
– The Spartakiad is an opportunity to test yourself and confirm your leadership. The Russian championship will soon take place, where else do you have to prove yourself and declare yourself. Spartakiad and the Russian Championship are equivalent tournaments, but now the top eight take part, and in Chita an inexperienced young man can become a rival and show all the leaders of the national team who is now the first number here ( laughter). You still need to keep in shape and prepare for the main departure to the country. The Spartakiad is a competition in which I really want to win, but this year the Russian championship is more important for me,” Zakirov told reporters.
