Simon Berriochoa: "I am very excited to announce that despite the above, USAF Armwrestling is alive and well, continuing to develop and serve the US armwrestling community.."

Message from Simon Berriochoa posted on facebook by Denise Wattles:

"Today it is with a heavy heart and much nostalgia that I unfortunately have to address an issue within our country’s sport. For some time now we have been struggling with an investigation within our board regarding multiple board representatives. Despite this investigation being supported by the World Armwrestling Federation and the North American Armwrestling Federation our two next step governing bodies, these board representatives continually refuse to cooperate, as well, they have illegally attempted to subvert and undermine this investigation, seemingly believing that they have no obligation to adhere to the legal investigation. This continual failure to resolve these matters legally within the investigation process has created an irreparable rift within the USAF board. As such we are left with no choice but to announce that the current USAF representative board is being dissolved in its existing form. Not USAF Armwrestling, that entity remains strongly intact, only the current board form is changing. I consider these people my friends, but in the end I am embarrassed by the level our country now resides at in this sport globally, subsequently action is required to fulfill our responsibility to serve the athletes of the USA and create a board that represents the armwrestlers and cooperate to the growth of the sport.

Should referees be treated this way?

photo: Armpower.net

A few days ago an "incident" occurred in the armwrestling world. At the Polish Armwrestling Cup, an armwrestler who was dissatisfied with a call hit a referee. He was immediately disqualified, but that did not stop his temper: he wanted to fight the referee and waited for him outside by the doors, shouting expletives.

WAF Head Referee, Leonard Harkless, has commented on this situation:

"The federation would need to discipline the athlete and should do so. That is beyond anything that I have seen in the past and should not be allowed to go unchecked" - Leonard Harkless.

It was a mater of time, I knew that Polish Armwrestling Federation will react accordingly, and it will be an example and serve as a caution for others. The last thing armwrestling needs is hooliganism, like sometimes occurs in football / soccer. Yesterday on October 10th, 2018, the athlete has been suspended for one year (starting from October 7th, 2018).
