Hope everyone’s Holidays were good. And that 2002 will bring about many good things for
armwrestling. The World
Championship held in Poland was a great success.
There were competitors from 29 countries and they had 806 entries.
This was without a doubt the largest and best World’s to date.
For full results check out the USA web site:
As far as good things for armwrestling this year, how about the World
Championships being held in Illinois. I
hope that everyone has started training for the Unified Nationals, which will
also be held in Illinois in August. More
details on this on the USA web site. We
would love to see this World surpass last years with even more countries and
competitors. You should try and
make this event even if you have to go as a spectator.
But hopefully you will qualify for the World’s.
We will try to post as much info as we can on the IAF web site plus
everything we can in upcoming newsletters.
For everyone that has not been to the IAF site lately we have added an
armwrestling forum. Feel free to
post questions, tips or any thing else that you think might be of interest to
armwrestling. The forum is on the
post page. There is also a poll
about the possible unification between USA & AAA.
Not as many votes on there as I thought there would be, feel free to cast
your vote. We have also added the
new World Armwrestling
Federation(WAF) to our links page.
