INTERNATIONAL ARMWRESTLING FEDERATION
AFFILIATED WITH UNITED STATES ARMWRESTLING FEDERATION
The PAC World Championship at Mohegan Sun was a super event.
The talent there was incredible.
To watch John Brzenk come in at 197lbs and enter two classes was amazing.
In the 199+ he came back from the loser bracket to defeat Jerry Cadorette
and Marcio Barboza.
He then had a tough match with Ron Bath who
beat John twice and went on to win the Supers. Ron Bath looked the best I
have seen in some time. He defeated Cadorette, Barboza and John Brzenk.
Congratulation Ron and all the other competitors that made this year's event
so great. Everyone was waiting to see Allen Fisher and Roman Tsindeliari.
Last year Allen took 1st
and Roman took 2nd.
This year was just the opposite with Roman beating Allen twice to capture 1st
place. Our own Ron Klemba took 3rd
behind Fisher in this class. Ron also took 2nd
in the Left Open, 1st
in the Right & Left Masters. Norm Devio took 1st
in Masters & Grand Masters. Mohegan Sun has invited PAC back next year and
they are talking about signing a 3 year deal. The tournament will be aired
mid December. The full results are posted on the new PAC website:
and also on the IAF site and the Northeast Board. Check out the new PAC
