Time in the sport
Since 1997. I injured my wrist and the doctor told me to never armwrestle again.
Stefan Hüppin is a tough opponent for me. Although I've beaten him in our most recent matches he always seems to be attacking my weaknesses and puts them under a lot of pressure. I've been lucky in some cases to beat him.
My toughest match was against Roman Tsindiliani in the final of the PAC Worlds in Connecticut. I would've been happy with 2nd place against such an amazing champion but when I realised I could win it was not only a battle against Roman, it was also a battle against a belief in myself because I never expected to beat him that day! It was a great victory for me. I must add that Roman was very tired because he entered 3 weight classes but non the less it's still a great win for me!

Best training advice
Learn from people better than you.
Accept injury and don't give up when it happens!
Isolate muscle groups. (Back, Biceps, Forearm, Chest)
I'm very determined.. don't know if that's a talent and I plan on learning another language.
What changes to the sport would you like to see?
