Ladies and Gentlemen!
The Professional Armwrestling League is spreading its activities extensively all over the world.
Today I have the pleasure to announce the appointment of Mr. Karim El Andary as PAL's official ambassador to the Middle East & Gulf (22 countries).
Karim El Andary, a young man from Lebanon, a small Middle Eastern country that bravely struggles with the consequences of war and chaos, was able to do an incredibly great job in developing our sport in his country in a very short time period.
Establishing LAW, the Lebanese armwrestling federation, Karim El Andary, through his energy, dedication and vision of the future, organized arm wrestling tournaments in which hundreds of enthusiasts from all regions of Lebanon took part and which made Lebanon an important point on the world armwrestling map.
His character and desire to discover the huge potential of arm-wrestling in the Middle East allowed him to show the whole world that in Lebanon there are live and strong people, athletes with strong hands, ready to fight and win.
What this man managed to do is simply amazing.
I have the honor to appoint him as the official Ambassador of WAC, PAL USA, ZLOTY TUR, ARMBETS.TV in 22 countries: Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine , Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
