are you from?
Ohio. I lived in Illinois for a few
long have you been armwrestling?
been involved in Arm wrestling since January 1991. I was 14 yrs old.
did you get started?
first time I armwrestled was against an industrial arts instructor in school. He
had an armwrestling table at the school and I was armwrestling other kids in my
class. I was only getting pinned by the heavy weight guys. The instructor gave
me my first tournament flyer and I went to the tournament. I've been
addicted to armwrestling ever since then.
At this arm wrestling championship, Ohio State, I lost
2 matches and I was out of the competition. I decided then that I wanted to be
good at this sport of armwrestling. At my second tournament, I saw Mike O'Hara
pull like five different weight classes. He won about 4 classes. He ended up
leaving the tournament with five trophies. He was my first armwrestling
have you done since then?
pulling for years, I finally won my first tournament in October of 1994. Finally
when I moved to Illinois of August of 1996, I started to compete more and
getting more experience by winning state championships. I got introduced to the
World’s Wristwrestling Championship (armwrestling) in Petaluma and the World
National Wristwrestling Association.

the important ones:
