Published on 30 Oct 2014

The 2014 Melbourne Cup proved to be an excellent opportunity for both up-and-comers and old hands to show their metal.

The title for the 80kg right hand class was taken out by Aldo Toma, a new entrant into the rankings at 10th position (37th overall). Similarly, the title for the 80kg left hand class was won by Max Gibbins, a new entrant into the rankings at 5th position (25th overall). Two other noteworthy competitors are Rory Magnobosco and John Bowley, who took second and third respectively in both the right hand and left hand 80kg classes, continuing their steady ratings progress.

The titles for the 95kg classes were taken out by two well-known Victorians, Andrew Lea for the left hand, and Brett Coutts for the right hand. Coutts has recently returned from Lithuania, where he competed in the 36th World Armwrestling Championships and placed 8th in the senior men left 90kg class, and 11th in the senior men right 90kg class.

But Queensland’s Doug Fatafehi continued his domination of the heavyweight class, once again winning both titles for the right and left hands. Fatafehi has moved up two places in the heavyweight rankings for the left hand.
