This is just a fragment, read the entire interview on:

-1. How much time do you spend training and how did you get to know this sport and be interested in it?
I spend about one to two days a week practicing on a regulation table with other good armwrestlers that live in the Utah area.
My father introduced me to the sport at the early age of thirteen. Even though I armwrestled like any other young boy at that age, it was my father who got me into the professional side of the sport.

-2. What armwrestler do you admire most and why?
I admire the wrestler who sticks with it. Week in, and week out. while still getting beat by most of their competitors. It’s really easy to stick with something if you have a talent for it, but it’s a real love and passion when everything comes a little bit harder.

-3. What are your expectations in this sport?
I continue to enjoy the people I meet because of this sport. That and practicing week in and out with local friends is the best part of any sport. It’s the common goals and working together at times to reach these goals that makes sport so worthwhile.

-4. What other sports do you practice?
No other sport at this time …

-5. What advice would you give to the young boys and girls who start with this sport?
To start slow …Rome wasn’t built in a day. It takes time. Enjoy the training and learning. This is the best part, and getting better will come with time and dedication.

-6. Apart from this sport… what other objectives do you have for your future?
To stay healthy, and inform people of what I have enjoyed about this sport. At this point in my life I don’t have any new earth shattering goals … Staying within my limits and being injury free is something I strive for at this point.

-7. What armwrestling tecnique do you think is the best?
There is no best. They’re all good for different situations. And different competitors. Being good at all the angles is the key to becoming more successful than the next guy.
