PAL Joins Bulldog to Host India’s First World Arm Wrestling Ranking Series. ()
Did you know that arm wrestling has been an organized sport in India for the last 43 years? We bet you didn’t! However, India has never hosted a world-ranking event with a unified ranking system for Indian athletes to prove their mettle.
What most people do not know is that professional arm wrestlers go through the same amount of turmoil and rigorous training, like athletes of more popular sports, to be able to compete in International competitions. Unfortunately, majority of the Indian arm wrestlers have to face a lot of hardships due to insufficient finances, which barely covers their cost of living; which in turn affects their fitness and performance levels.
According to Ronnie Sehgal, CEO of Bulldog Armwrestling, ‘’There is no dearth of talented arm wrestlers in India. I have personally come across some of the most dedicated arm wrestlers in the country who have devoted their life to the sport. These athletes deserve the right recognition and support, which they have been deprived of, for a very long time. That is about to change very soon.
