Last year, on Independence Day, we presented our federation in the Pidzamok Park, and the interest in this sport is growing. We have plans to build a special gym not only for strongmen, but for anyone who wants to work out together with real athletes. There are social programs for children and adults, workshops, we plan to hold quarterly qualifiers. It will be the gym for all power sports."
