For Eduard Kabdeshev it is the third world championship, and for Kirill it is the first. And his debut was brilliant: Kirill became world champion in his age category (13-15 years with weight up to 52 kg) in several nominations.

– Last year when my father together with Eduard returned from the championship in the USA and showed me the photos, I thought that I should also start training and I wanted to become strong. I told my father about my wish and we started to train serioulsy, – says the young champion.

– Our main goal is to promote healthy lifestyle, – added E. Kabdeshev.
