-2. What armwresther do you admire most and why?
I really am a fan of so many armwrestlers, and don’t really want to single anyone out. I try to appreciate the diversity in the sport. Generally I like prefer people who really enjoy and are good at armwrestling if i could be vague.

-3. What are your expectations in this sport?
I expect to be involved in one way or another for my whole life. I will compete as long as i can, at whatever level i can manage, train, and move more into promotion as time goes on.

I love to play games. Some i make up myself lol.. i have played alot of basketball, and used to do a little MMA, I have dabbled in many sports. These days i am loving ping pong!!

Be patient. Be consistent. Be diverse. Keep your body balanced. Prioritize table training above all other exercises. Find others who love armwrestling- train/discuss/compete together.

Be a good father, Squeeze as much out of life as possible.
