The real reason I like this type of events is because it recognizes Armwrestling as a real sport. More people will understand that you have to do some hard specific training for several years, in order to become good at armwrestling. Award events like this one shows that there is actual a huge difference between an armwrestler and a strong athlete from a different sport.
