In the last article from armsport-inva.com it was written that the European Armwrestling Championships for Disabled Persons will take place in Poland, 09-16 June 2014.
In this new article from IronWorld.ru we learn that the European Armwrestling Championships for Disabled Persons will be held at the Gniew Castle, Poland – where last year was held the 13th POLISH CUP 2012, Gniew Castle – 15-16 December 2012.
Because the number of disabled competitors is usually small, this year the European Armwrestling Championships for Disabled will be open to receive disabled competitors from Asia, Africa and America.

Alexander Filimonov of the new federation in arm wrestling among disabled – IAFD

It is known that in the next year, European and World Championships in arm wrestling among the disabled athletes will carry the new federation – IAFD ( http://www.armsport-inva.com/ ). We decided to find out details of the president IAFD Alexander Filimonov.

IRON WORLD: European Championship will be held in Poland?
Alexander Filimonov: Yes! For us, a very important quality start of the new format of the competition for the disabled. And that quality is guaranteed professional team of Igor Mazurenko. Championship will be held in the castle itself, which already held the championship Polish armsportu. We will do everything possible to maintain the level of organization of the event, which we all saw at the World Cup this year.Will be organized Broadcast on TV and online. The stage, sound, lights – all will meet the highest quality standards. And all of this money will be focused only on athletes with disabilities.

JM: It is known that the category of disabled athletes smaller ones. How do you plan to deal with it?
AF: This problem does exist. We have identified several areas of its solutions. First, the European Championship in Poland will open. It will be open to arm wrestlers from Asia, Africa and America. Second, we plan to abolish the quota of two people from the same country in the category. Do not forget that the championship will be attended not only athletes with diseases of the musculoskeletal system, but also with visual and hearing impairment. Of course, they will fight alone.
An important point – just weight categories. Now they are not. Too much difference between them – 15 lbs!
The women – on the contrary. A lot of categories, but almost all empty. In junior same situation.
We plan to Congress IAFD in Moscow to discuss and perhaps adopt new weight classes for all groups of disabled athletes. However, on the European and world championships in 2014 will remain the same weight class. So we agreed on the Directorate WAF.

JM: What categories do you think would be optimal?
AF: I do not propose to invent a bicycle and we take the weight categories NEMIROFF World Cup and adjust them a little bit.

For example, for adults with visual and hearing impairment, weight categories might look like this: 

Men (fighting the right, left hand): 63 kg, 70 kg, 78 kg, 86 kg, 95 kg, +95 kg.

Women (fight right, left hand): 52 kg, 65 kg, +65 kg.

Juniors (16-18 years old, the fight on the right, the left hand): 63 kg, 70 kg, 78 kg, 86 kg, +86 kg.

Juniors (16-18 years old, the fight on the right, the left hand): 52 kg, 65 kg, +65 kg.

For persons with disabilities served (separately for wheelchairs and those who fight standing) – Class ARM1 (athletes, moving constantly in a wheelchair and competing seated):

Men (fighting the right, left hand): 70 kg, 78 kg, 86 kg, +86 kg.

Women (fight right, left hand): 65 kg, +65 kg.

Juniors (16-18 years old, the fight on the right, the left hand): 70 kg, 78 kg, +78 kg.

Juniors (16-18 years old, the fight on the right, the left hand): 52 kg, +52 kg.

Class ARM2 – Athletes competing Standing

Men (fighting the right, left hand): 70 kg, 78 kg, 86 kg, +86 kg.

Women (fight right, left hand): 65 kg, +65 kg.

Juniors (16-18 years old, the fight on the right, the left hand): 70 kg, 78 kg, +78 kg.

Juniors (16-18 years old, the fight on the right, the left hand): 52 kg, +52 kg.

Invite all interested parties to discuss this very important topic!
We will look at all the options suggested categories at the meeting team officials at the European Championships in Poland. We choose the best solution and will submit it for discussion at the congress in Moscow.

JM: At the European Championships and the 2014 World already is a division of disabled athletes from Submitted to those who will fight sitting in wheelchairs as well as those who will fight for the ordinary table stand?
AF: Yes, of course! And the key word here – in wheelchairs. Everyone who enters the classification of sedentary desk, will compete in wheelchairs organizers. The chairs of struggle will never happen again .
