Andrey Karabeshkin (Freestyle) – this is his second Russian Championship. Last year he couldn’t get onto the podium. Now Andrey is planning to make a come back with some new skills and tricks in his arsenal. It was a hard decision for Andrey to enter in Freestyle, as he has always preferred D2W. Therefore, he combines two disciplines now.
