This years competition was filled with pulse pounding excitement and energy! You
actually had to see the competition to believe some of the amazing upsets and
This year we were witness to another first time event!
The crowd went wild with enthusiasm, as GARY ROBERTS the director and host of
ARM TV entered as a competitor in his first ever arm wrestling competition!
Roberts was pumped, he'd been training hard, he wanted it bad! Roberts came
onto stage and intimidated his opponents by ripping a 950 page Buena Park phone
book in half with his bare hands! The crowd went wild! they hadn't seen such an
exhibition of strength before from a first time competitor.
This wild exhibition of raw strength set the stage for some of the most exhilarating
one on one arm wrestling competition ever!
Plus! the women's division, the divas of arm wrestling produced some major crowd
response as last years champ Tammy Trujillo was temporarily stopped by Sarah
Sampias a new force in the women's division to be reckoned with.
