Performance Handling

As in other sports , there are different Federations with differing ranking systems. Use the tables for inspiration rather than become intimidated by the "upper classes". Rome wasn't built in a day and not many have the time or resources to train like the pros (e.g. up to 6 hours a day). Nonetheless there is great satisfaction to be had in ascending the rungs of the ranking ladders , and age is certainly no barrier to progress. A number of experienced senior gireviks in the Russian states are able to regularly post Master of Sports numbers. For example , Fedor Fuglev of the Ukraine aged 44 ranks in the top 3 in the world in recent traditional and long cycle competition results, and is improving! And younger gireviks will continue to get their hides whipped by their older , wiser , wilyer and tougher compatriots!
