Origin Of Armwrestling

Arm wrestling is a sport where strength and technique play a critical role. It has always been seen as a way of showing who is stronger. Arm wrestling can be traced back all the way to Ancient Egypt about 2000 B.C. The modern sport is based out of a Native American game and it was previously called “Indian Wrestling”. The organized sport today was founded by Bill Soberanes a young journalist back in 1952. The first matches were held at Gilardi’s saloon located in Petaluma, California.

Matthias Schlitte is 29 year old arm wrestler from Germany. He was born with a generic bone disorder that made his right arm bone much larger than his left arm. Matthias has definitely taken this to his advantage becoming a champion arm wrestler. Nicknamed “Hellboy” he has now over a decade career in the sport winning multiple championships including the German “Over the Top” tournament.

Aside from the last guy the first two should not even be allowed to compete since they have these deformities allowing them an advantage. Either way this is a cool sport and a true sport of power and strength
