Team’s departure


Engin Terzi – Armwrestling Engin (21 Sept 2017): The date for the 2018 World Championships is 13-22 of October. The city is Antalya.

Zil Fadli: the Grand Kremlin Palace right?

Engin Terzi: Yes and soon all the details will be given by the official page. It will hopefully be the best ever WAF with accomodation, organisation and awards.

Zil Fadli: i hope so too. all in one. everyone will enjoy the food thats for sure 😁

Engin Terzi: Our President Niyazi Kurt is planning to give Armwrestling Arm Trophies for the senior medalists for sure, maybe even for the other categories as well depending on our budget and cost.

Engin Terzi: There will be 6 times a day free food service. 3 of them will be huge open buffet and other 3 will be spesific type of food service such as kabab. For sure you will not need to spend single coin for food

Engin Terzi created a Poll in Armwrestling Engin (◄ click the red link):

” Would you like to see an Overall Championships with prize money award at the end of the WAF 2018? I asked to Assen and he said it is fine as long as the title is different than official WAF title. So i will do my best to convince our President Niyazi Kurt who says the last word. My opinion is either from heaviest category to down single elimination, or double elimination but draw will be as heaviest one against 110kg, 100kg against 90kg and so on. “
