Over $5,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded and all first, second and third place finishers will receive custom engraved 4” Olympic-size Gold, Silver and Bronze medallions. Male and female “Strongest Arm” MVP’s will be crowned and the NYC Arm Wrestler of the year will be chosen. Pros will receive first place cash awards while amateurs will receive awards only.
This event will feature contestants those who qualified from each of the five NYC Boroughs, Long Island and beyond. Among those expected to compete are the NYC Big Apple Grapple Champions Mirline Berrouet from South Ozone Park, Queens, who also is the defending Empire State champion and 07 Arm Wrestler of the year. Berrouet has won more than 15 professional arm wrestling titles in her career. Another champion expected to compete is Marcio Barboza from Brazil who outdid himself last year by pounding the competition with his uncanny ability to ‘flash pin’ (win in a second) all comers with brute strength and lightning speed.
