On 4-7 June last year, eight top pullers in the world came to the town of Stara Zagora in Bulgaria to take part in a two-day competition - Armfight # 41 - World Cup Armfight. First, the armwrestlers competed in qualifiers and then in semi-finals and finals. Each match consisted of six rounds. The two-day event preceded by the draw ceremony brought great excitement to everyone. The atmosphere was really warm, and the results ... Well, the results were quite surprising and, more importantly, they showed that our pullers were in a really good shape - ready for the next events in the 2012 season.
