The French Armwrestling National Championship took place on March 3-rd, 2018 in Velizy, near to Paris. There were 90 participants representing 10 from 17 armwrestling clubs of France.
This year the organization changed and it was a little worse organized than last year in Nice. Nice was an incredible national championship and everyone called it the greatest ever made since there is armwrestling in France.
There was no open category this year because schedule did not allow to do it.
Everybody noticed the absence of Aymeric Pradines, the French Overall champion on both hands, because of injuries.
In the lighter weight classes, David Vitry did a great job as usual and won both hands. Christophe "THE STING" Rey couldn’t get any advantage of his chance against David this year because of biceps injury during qualification fight.
In 75kg David Diouf was surprisingly beaten by the new strong guy Denis Pancu from Romania on both hands.
Jozsef Lovei, who usually dominated in 80 kgs category, didn’t compete this year so the strong guy from Mali, Yoro Sidibe replaced him and won the category without big trouble on both hands.
Last year, the 85 kgs category was won by Michael Bobillo but this time it was Oleksander Zaremba who was on the 1-st place.
