This is ”our” Polish place where we, as organizers, want to come out well!
One hundred and sixty sets of medals are waiting!
About one thousand or even more competitors. Four days of matches! In total, eight hours a day of excitement! From juniors to seniors. Come and join us in a beautiful place at the Baltic Sea.
Poland is one of the leading organizers of armwrestling events, both amateur and professional. We’ve already organized many successful events, including the first international competition in Tricity, or Lion Cup 2012. You’ve certainly noticed that even the European Championships in Lithuania had a “Polish mark” as Mazurenko Promotion Team (a group connected with the Armwrestling Federation Poland) was involved in organizing the event.
Being aware of what went well in Lithuania, we also know what could be improved. That’s why the more serious we take organizing the World Championships in Poland. For sure, we don’t want you to experience another disappointment, as it was the case with the competition in Brazil in 2012.

The 4-day competition will be divided into two parts. On the first day (04 September, 2013) left-hand matches will be held in the following categories: younger juniors, masters and disabled athletes (both men and women). On the second day (05 September 2013) the above mentioned competitors will lock their right arms on the table. Elder juniors (up to 21) and seniors will compete in left-hand matches on the third day of the competition (06 September 2013). On the last day (07 September 2013) they will fight in right-hand matches.
158 weight classes
The agenda for each day of the competition is as follows. Each day will start with eliminations (from 9 a.m.) This year, there will be eight tables on the stage, each assigned to a given weight class. A computer programme will automatically draw competitors who will fight first. The winners will go to group A, whereas the defeated to group B. If a competitor losses twice, they’ll be eliminated. In the final elimination matches, competitors fight for fifth and fourth places. The top three competitors will compete after a break in the second part of the competition. The final matches will start at 4 p.m. on the first two days, while on the last two days at 6 p.m. So if you want to see the greater number of matches, come in the morning. If, on the other hand, you’d like to witness the decisive phase, join us in the afternoon.
