Exclusive Interview with Srinivas Gowda

1) How is the training going?

My training is going very well. I was injured a while back and have recovered completely and hence the training is going on in full swing.

2) How are you preparing for the second season?

 My preparation for Season 2 is going very well. I am training under my coach and he’s been working on my form and technique. A lot of changes has happened in my playing style. My strength has also increased. I have challenged Chandan openly and for what I am training hard.

3) How was your experience in the first season?

My experience in Season 1 was very good. I have never seen Armwrestling at such a stage before. Pro Panja gave a lot of importance to the special category. I have even done bodybuilding before and even there no one gave this much importance to body building. The specially abled athletes were given same importance as athletes from other categories and I have never seen any other sports doing this. My family, friends and colleagues never thought that they will be able to see me compete live on national television. Everyone is asking me about dates for season 2. More than me, my family and friends are eager for the second season.

4) Your most memorable moment from Season 1?

My favourite moment from Season 1 was when my team Rohtak Rowdies reached the semi-finals. In the semis, it was a neck to neck fight between Rohtak Rowdies and Kiraak Hyderabad. We lost the finals by a single point and the matches were terrific.

5) What can we expect from Srinivas in Season 2?

Fans can expect 100% strong performance from my side. I will perform to the strongest of my ability.
