Zaurbek Sidakov is one of the world’s toughest wrestlers in the 74kg category. With one Olympics and three World Championships gold medals, Sidakov is a force to be reckoned with, and a recent social media clip shows the Russian falling back on a few traditional sources to enhance his strength.

In a post on Instagram by Wrestling Stars, Sidakov can be seen drinking a concoction that allegedly helps with the recovery process post-training. “Sidakov drinks his special drink after training“, reads the caption of the post, and fans can only guess what the esoteric mix contains. While Dake has previously emerged as an unconquerable obstacle for many stars on their way to the Olympics, it looks like Sidakov may find his inner beast in Paris.

Sidakov has qualified for the 2024 Olympic Games thanks to a gold-winning performance in Belgrade last year, at the World Championships. Interestingly enough, the Russian won the title after taking down Kyle Dake in the final matchup of the 74kg weight class.

Understandably, Dake will be looking for a shot at redemption after being forced to walk away from last year’s event with a silver. However, Sidakov’s potion might be just the thing that tilts the balance in his favor once again, a lucky charm of sorts. For the inquisitive, the post also claims that the potion is essentially a sort of natural tea that’s made with five different fruits. Thirst-quenching elixir aside, there is a thirst-satiating rivalry as well between these two wunderkinds.

One take at a time

Growing up, I didn’t really have an interest in Olympic sports, but it was always something intriguing. As I found the means and the opportunity to explore its world, I found sports like volleyball, and track & field to be something that had tons to offer instead of just scoring through kills and sprinting toward the finish line. Whether it is Nebraska Huskers dominating the court or Noah Lyles maintaining his winning spree on the tracks, these two sports never fail to serve adrenaline rush to their spectators.
