Elbrus Nigmatullin, whose photo before you, for his life has set many records, including the Guinness record. The name Elbrus suits him, as it seems, most of all.
Nigmatullin Elbrus: childhood
In the Chelyabinsk small village of Chubary in 1974, on March 30, a Russian hero was born - Elbrus Khamitovich Nigmatullin. His father was also notable for his remarkable strength, he worked in the smithy. Mom was the keeper of the hearth and worked as an animal breeder. In a simple village family, no one could have thought that a little boy would become a world famous strongman.
From the age of twelve Elbrus Nigmatullin began to seriously engage in sports. In a small village, without gyms and gyms, it was quite difficult. But if there is a desire, then the output can be found from any situation. The guy found this way out - he made his gym at home from an improvised material, the blessing that there was always enough iron in the yard of the Nigmatullins. First Elbrus is engaged in basketball, but then realizes that his vocation is wrestling and weightlifting.
The village was too small for a boy who aspired to world knowledge. He used every opportunity for self-development. While studying in primary classes, Elbrus helped the village postman to lay out magazines and newspapers. Of these, he learned a lot of interesting things about sports and sporting achievements, soon he began to dream that he would become better known to the world's strongmen and be able to achieve excellent results in power sports.
Nigmatullin's parents really wanted his son to stay in his native village, but the guy was already unable to keep. In 1991 he graduated from the school in Chelyabinsk and seriously began to work on armwrestling. In 1996, the already mature strong man graduated from the Institute of Physical Culture in the same Chelyabinsk and received the specialty "trainer-teacher of physical education."
Way to glory
If you want to learn how to achieve the impossible, ask Elbrus - he knows exactly how to go to the intended goal, despite the obstacles. Despite the healthy appearance, Nigmatullina was not taken into the army. He was commissioned because of high pressure. Sending the guy home, strict doctors said that his illness was so serious that without proper treatment Elbrus would not live to see his thirtieth birthday.
To say that the guy was upset by this news, it's nothing to say. He really wanted to serve in the army, he was ashamed of his countrymen, as if he did not specifically attend the service. But then Elbrus set himself a great goal and began to go to her, regardless of the disease. The illness recoiled before such a pressure of will power, at 19 years the guy became a master of sports in powerlifting.
The great athlete all his life very much appreciated the opinion of fellow villagers. When he appeared to them with the first master badge, he was just blown away with happiness and pride. At the age of twenty, Elbrus Nigmatullin received the title of the champion of Russia.
