Armwrestling has been an organized World Wide sport for decades but still it did not get enough of respect that it deserves because of not being an Olympic Sport Discipline. ()
There are many reasons for our sport not being in the Olympics, some are our fault and some are the populist Olympic Committee’s fault. I am not going to discuss why we are not an Olympic Sport but I want to discuss about the closest possible way to reach Olympic recognition.
I believe that the closest way to reach Olympic recognition is through the Disabled Armwrestling. It is not that easy for disabled people to perform all kind of sports but there are some sport disciplines that are well fitting for these special athletes. In my opinion armwrestling is one of these well-fitting sports for the disabled athletes. Armwrestling is such a great physical combat sport that disabled people has chance to beat people who does not have disabilities. To me this is a great prove for armwrestling being a perfect physical combat sport for most of these special people.
What I try to say is that para-armwrestling is the way for our sport to receive it’s Olympic recognition because para-armwrestling’s popularity has much more potential to be very famous in disabled athletics than armwrestling in none disabled athletes.
