The winner of the first day of the At-Home Super League, an online burpee tournament organized by the Roscongress Foundation and Telesport Media, is the holder of European Nations Cup in free style wrestling Murad Nukhkadiev, who did 41 burpees in a minute. Olympic Judo Champion Arsen Galstyan took the second place with 38 burpees, and two-time luge World Champion Roman Repilov was third with 37 burpees.
«I do a lot of crossfit, so Im no stranger to burpees. At first, I looked at it as entertainment, but when I saw that football and sumo guys do 35 repetitions, I started taking it seriously. I was to make a debut in MMA in April, but it was postponed due to the pandemic. Everybody wants to compete. So it would be interesting to participate in an online tournament organized by such a well-known company. I think it was a great idea. The guest of the programme was Guinness World Record holder Igor Kim who did 4555 burpees in 12 hours. I challenge him, and Im sure I will take one minute off his time!» said Murad Nukhkadiev.
Among the participants of the online tournament were 2018 Olympics skeleton medallist Nikita Tregubov, two-time snowboard World Champion Dmitry Loginov, Greco-Roman wrestling World Champion Stepan Maryanyan, two-time beach soccer World Champion Anton Shkarin, Rugby Europe International Championships medallist Alexey Shcherban, World and European sumo champion Konstantin Abdula-Zade. Eduard Bezuglov, the chief doctor of the Russian national football team, was the chief referee of the competition.
