How and when did you get into armwrestling.
I came across armwrestling whilst walking round the SENI Combat Show where I noticed the competition.My friend who I was with at the time challenged me to enter. To cut a long story short I got third place in the novice comp after the comp I noticed a guy with a Rossendale Arm Wrestling T shirt on and was keen to learn out more about arm wrestling. I asked if it would be possible to train with them – he was very helpful – he gave me his phone number and even arranged a lift for me. This person was Nick Hall ,My 1st training session was pretty full onto say the least – there was a multi club meet on, names like Stan Dickenson, Paul maiden, Stuart Hall to name but a few Although I wasn’t aware of who these people were at the time – I could tell I was in the right place.
2007 has been a big year for me so far – I have won some big matches, At Arm Wars I got 2nd place on the left arm. I have also beat Steven Kirlew and Tony Leigh in Supermatches. I got 1st place on both arms at this years British Championships. To win the British I had to beat Sylvan Carty and Clive Ferguson on the left arm. My best match this year was at ArmWars against the Georgian Ivane Kibilashvli. I gave him a good pull and at one point I had good hand control, but I panicked and lost the match.
