Heroes of the 70 kg weight category of the “Zloty Tur 2018” Professional Armwrestling World Cup, Engin Terzi and Mindaugas Tarasaitis will meet in Istanbul on February 9, 2019 in two armfights on the right and left hand.
These fights will forever remain in history and this is why.
In 2018, Armwrestling Professional League (PAL), as promised, launched the Unified Rating of Professional Armwrestling (URPA). About a week ago, in 2019, the registration of all interested athletes in this rating was opened.
But before the start of the general registration, the first names already appeared in the rating. These are the names of the participants of the “Zloty Tur 2018” Professional Armwrestling World Cup, which, based on the results of their performance at the Cup, were awarded the first rating points in the second “Elite” URPA division.
Engin Terzi and Mindaugas Tarasaitis are also among the registered, certified athletes.
According to the rules of the rating, to improve their rating position, each armwrestler can take part in a rating Tournament to score points or (if they already have rating points) take a leap up by holding a rating armfight with a rival with a higher position. Let's take a closer look at what happens on the first armfight in the history of URPA.
Engin Terzi won first place on the Zloty Tur in the 70 kg category and scored 10 tournament points. Zloty Tur has the highest rating Tournament multiplier - 10. Thus, Engin received 100 points in the ranking.
Mindaugas Tarasaytis took the fifth place on the Zloty Tur in the category of 70 kg and received 3x10 = 30 points in the rating.
Thus, on the upcoming Vendetta, Mindaugas Tarasaytis will attempt to “overthrow” Engin Terzi from the pedestal. If he succeeds in defeating the champion of the category, he will receive opponent’s number of rating points (100) plus two points. Engin, in this case, will not lose his points, but will receive only one point for participating. As a result, Mindaugas will be in first place in the Unified Rating of Professional Armwrestling, and Engin - in second place.
At the same time, the positions of other participants will change downward by one position.
If Mindaugas loses, Engin will get plus two points to the existing 100 points, and Mindaugas will get 1 point. The positions of rivals will not change.
Engin Terzi finished second in the Zloty Tur in the 70 kg category and scored 7x10 = 70 points in the rating.
Mindaugas Tarasaytis won first place on the Zloty Tur in the category of 70 kg and received 10x10 = 100 points in the rating.
Here Engin will fight for the championship. If Engin wins, the rivals will change places.
The message that the armfight in Turkey will have URPA rating status, enlivened the information space, increased the number of registrations in the Unified Professional Armwrestling Rating (URPA).
Here is what Kirill Yakovlev, Communications Manager at Professional Armwrestling League (PAL) said:
