So You Think You’re Hard? The NSW Armwrestling Championships Returns Next Month

NSW Armwrestling Championships 2022

You’ve run through all your mates (thrice over). Nobody at the local stands a chance, not even the seasoned codgers in high-vis who’ve spent a lifetime lugging bricks and sinking tins. The F45 crew don’t even have the stones to make glancing eye contact with you in broad daylight. Now, it’s time to really test your mettle at the 2022 NSW Armwrestling Championships.

Yes, it’s that time of the year again when “easily one of the biggest events” on the Australian Armwrestling Federation calendar returns. Attracting tougher-than-a-$2-steak operators from all over the state – some even hailing from beyond – it’s set to be a certifiable clash of homegrown titans. Take on the likes of Mario Tambakis, Ryan Scott, Phil Rasmussen, Ryan Bowen, Brett Coutts, Harrison Oakley, Kyle Howarth, David Loncarevic, and more. If you dare.
