You have great experience organizing sport events in Malaysia. Can you advise something for those who also works on organizing armwrestling championships?
– To organize a good world championship is to consider the travel distance of armwrestlers from hotel to the venue. Also it will also benefit everyone that the venue is close and accessible to nearby facilities or interesting place to visit as armwrestlers should take the opportunity to do sightseeing. And always make sure that the championship used high quality referees and equipment to ensure everything is running smooth.
