A new Ukrainian record was set during the “Breakfast with the Champion”
In 2021, the special project of Parimatch “Breakfast with the Champion” took place in PMHUB. The main guest this time was Oleksiy Novikov, the strongest man on the planet.
“Breakfast with the Champion” has long been a traditional meeting for famous athletes with fans and journalists. During each of these events, the champions in various sports told both the secrets of their victories and how they spend time in their daily lives. From what they like to eat for breakfast, to their favorite movies or TV series.
Oleksiy Novikov came not only to talk to journalists and fans. Live, he set a new record for Ukraine in carrying the “Super Yoke” (Rocker) with live weight.
As a result, the representative of the Book of Records of Ukraine Ihor Pidchibiy recorded the following result: Oleksiy Novikov carried the “Super Yoke” with six women, the total weight of the structure was 490 kilograms, the distance of 10 meters was covered in 12 seconds. So, the record is set!
Oleksiy Novikov, the strongest man on the planet (2020): “When you are the strongest person on the planet and constantly compete, you have no right to lose, and for this you have to work 100%. “Super Yoke” with live weight and the ordinary one are different things. Live is unstable and you need to be more careful. I’m glad it all worked out. By the way, before the records I eat a little to reduce the load on the stomach. But today I had a breakfast of 13 fried eggs, porridge and salad.
“For me, a new period of training has already begun. There is no rest anymore and I am preparing for the next competition. I had a long break – a month and a half, most of this time I gave interviews, then rested a bit and now I work full time.
Vadym Misyura, Parimatch’s representative: “At the first events of the “Breakfast with the Champion” project there were such famous athletes as Tyson and McGregor. But we also have a lot of heroes in Ukraine. We give fans and journalists the opportunity to get to know them better. Our land is rich in talented people. And this time we started the year by inviting the strongest man on the planet to our site. Of course, setting the record was a very exciting event. It’s a sport, not always everything works out. But we all cheered for Oleksiy and he proved once again that he is a real champion. ”
Vasyl Virastyuk was also present in the Zoom-broadcast mode. And while Oleksiy set the record, Vasily talked to other viewers in comments on YouTube. In particular, Virastyuk was impressed by Novikov’s breakfast of 13 eggs today. And when he joined the “Breakfast with the Champion”, he admitted that at one time he could not even imagine that Oleksiy would become a real strongman.
Vasyl Virastyuk, the strongest man on the planet (2004): “I congratulate Oleksiy on setting another record. It is very difficult to work with live weight. I was very pleased to learn that he won the title of the strongest man. I remember when I was still training, Oleksiy was sitting next to me and looking at me. And then I learned that he himself began to practice. It was a little strange, because Oleksiy looked quite thin. And I am even happier that he has achieved such results. ”
The live conversation lasted more than an hour, during that time the journalists managed to ask dozens of questions, and the guests also responded to the comments of the audience. This once again showed the audience’s interest in this format of events. Therefore, a new “Breakfast with the Champion” should be expected soon.
The title partner Parimatch Ukraine organized a press conference for the players and the coach.
