Siberian farmer Vasily Kamotsky fells opponents with a single blow – attracting hilarity and outrage
Vasily Kamotsky does not so much slap his opponents as cudgel them with his massive palm. He was crowned the slapping champion at the Siberian Power Show, a competition so esoteric and objectionable that it seems tailor-made to be stumbled upon during a 3am YouTube binge.
However, Kamotsky was clear-eyed when it came to what he thought had prompted his sudden rise to prominence. “Two knockouts,” he said when reached by phone in his small town along the Trans-Siberian railroad. “I don’t think anyone had seen that before.”
