Para-ARM in PETRIe Magazine


Awesome article: Para-ARMWRESTLING - THE SHAPE OF STRENGTH, by Elena Stanciu on PETRIe Magazine supporting the Para-ARM.

"Strength and focus; pride and determination; emotion and endurance – all these words can be used to speak of para-armwrestling. But what words may fail to transmit, photography captures with clarity and in elaborate visual narratives. UK-based photographer Tomasz Wisniowski turns his lens towards para-armwrestling, managing to isolate split-second moments of quick, memorable fights. The result – a visual saga that escapes categorisation; the photographs are simultaneous portraits of incredibly strong individuals and records of exciting competitions, all traversed by a clear intention to emphasise the intensity of the sport. 

Supporting ParaARM


Para-ARM Lady, that's how I call Anna Mazurenko. Not many support and love para-armwrestling, as much as Anna dose. Thanks to her, disabled arm-wrestlers have an event organized on the highest, world level; the Disabled World Cup Poland, known as a Para-ARM World Cup. Every year, after pro arm-wrestlers finish competing at legendary Zloty Tur World Cup, the para-armwrestlers enter the stage. They fight for the victory in several different classes. In 2018, the biggest stars of Vendetta 50, such as: Denis Tsyplenkov, Devon Larratt, Tim Bresnan, Levan Saginashvili, or Genadi Kvikvinia were present during the two-day competition, supporting and cheering Para-ARM.

Also athletes and trainers who are near 20 years with Top of the World level pulling such as Devon Larratt, Janis Amolins, Krasimir Kostadinov, Ivan Matyushenko, Vladimir Petrenko. Then armwrestler or-and experts such as Eric Roussin, Kiril Bogdanski, Fabio Nimis, Tomasz Wisniowski.

Boxing, as a Nr.1 in combat sports family, in both Amateur (the other name, Olympic Boxing), and PRO (top four federations WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO) have use the "name" instead of "kilograms" for each individual weight category, which is much more prestigious way to present the champion, runner up, or other pretenders.
