” ARMWRESTLING
The 20th Annual Arnold Classic Armwrestling Challenge will determine who among the world’s top arm sports athletes has the most “pull” during the Arnold Sports Festival. Each year the best arm wrestlers in the world gather at the Greater Columbus Convention Center on the Arnold EXPO Stage for two days of armwrestling action.

The preliminary round is Friday, March 3 from 9:30-11 a.m. and the final round will Saturday, March 4, from 9-10 a.m.

“Armwrestling popularity has been on the rise in the US,” said Denise Wattles, event co-director. “2017 will be our biggest and best event ever with more than 268 qualified competitors.”

“The Arnold is the premiere arm sport event in the world,” said Fairfax Hackley, event co-director. “The top athletes from 13 countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Canada, India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Norway, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Ukraine, and United States will compete.”

“All competitors qualified by winning a national or world level event,” said Leonard Harkless, event co-director. “An interesting story this year is the Todd Family. ‘Monster’ Michael Todd is a returning champion but, his wife and son have also qualified.

Competitors to watch are: returning champion at 154 pounds, Vazgen Soghoyan of Los Angeles; Winner of the Game of Arms Craig Tullier of Louisiana; “Monster” Michael Todd of Arkansas; New York Firefighter Mike Ayello; Daniel “Ironman” Mosier, of Louisiana; 6-foot 5-inch 315-pound Richard Lupkes, three-time Super Heavy Weight World Champion of Minnesota; and Dmitriy Trubin of Kazakhstan. ”
