The draw will determine the “Champion - Contender” pairs for the first stage of the “TOP 8”. According to the rules, Champions will play odd numbers - 1, 3, 5, 7, and Contenders - even numbers - 2, 4, 6, 8.
The event will take place on Thursday, March 7th and will be broadcast live from the Polish television studio “Video Studio Gdansk” from 18:00 European time on Armbets.tv. The drawing procedure will be commented on in English and Russian.
Since the participants of the armfight tournament - the eight strongest arm wrestlers in the world - are fully focused on preparing for this important event, they will not participate in the draw personally. For them, this will be done by authorized persons live in front of tens of thousands of armwrestling fans.
According to the tournament regulations, the draw for the first stage of “TOP 8” must take place no later than one month before the start date of the tournament. Igor Mazurenko promised to announce this date on Friday, January 18th.
