During last weekend the competition “The arm battle of Sweden” was held in Brickhouse training center in Kallhäll, Sweden. It was the armwrestler Mattias Zografos that arranged this competition. I helped a little bit, especially with the womens class.
For the mens classes he invited some armwrestlers from abroad to challenge armwrestlers from Sweden. It was great matches. But I will focus on the womens classes.
In the womens classes we pulled “Round Robin”-style (all the armwrestlers met the others once, and then you see who has won most matches in the end). We had from the beginning invited several armwrestlers from abroad also for the womans. But most of them cancelled due to either health problems or other things. So we had a pure Swedish class, EXCEPT for the excellent Brigitta Ivanfi from Hungry.
Today, searching internet, I visited John Brzenk's profile on wikipedia. One of the external links in his profile is still the link not existing anymore, The Armwrestling History Channel (AHC).
What a nice surprise. Still you are able to see few pages of AHC, how it looked like. The link will direct you to web.archive.org. Then I have checked the other blog I used to run, the Armwrestling24, and it's the same. My next move was of course to check if my the most priceless source of all time, The World of Armwrestling is also there... and it's too. What a great recalls.
