Quayle, UK: “Paintings on helmets give inspiration to fighters who are on the lists”

    In our team there is some kind of tradition – fighters have nicknames. I have a shark’s mouth painted on my helm. So, I got a nickname “Sharky”. Fans and the crowd here in the UK find it easy to spot me when I`m fighting. The crowd love it!   I love this name and think it`s pretty good as I`m a runner in buhurts.   The idea…

Quayle, UK: “The Championship was brilliant!”

    I think our team was lucky to have a support group. The guys helped us a lot, brought water, cooked for us and helped to put on armor before the battles. A few of our fans came to Trogir as well. They wanted to see the battles and plunge into the atmosphere of the Middle Ages. They were fascinated by the show, so one of them wants to…
