In response to the handshake incident at the Quake World Championship 2017:
From Nikita "Clawz" Marchinsky:
"Winning the Duel Tournament was an exceptional, emotional experience for me, and in the excitement, seeing my team mates running up to me, I completely got swept up in the moment. The right thing to do would of course have been to shake hands with Vo0 immediately after the win, and upon realizing my mistake I went to Vo0 directly after to thank him for a good game and apologize for my laps in sportsmanship.
I have the utmost respect for Vo0 and what he has accomplished throughout his gaming career, and I am honored to have been in the Grand Finals vs a player of his caliber.
I'm sorry if anyone, especially Vo0, was offended by it, I was just too happy in the heat moment to realize what was going on at all."
