Fatemeh Raisi tells us about armwrestling in Iran:
Generally armwrestling has been started in Iran since 2006. At first just men could fight in this sport but now women can do that too. We have 31 provinces in Iran. Now all of them is active in the armwrestling. many men and women now join to the armwrestling family.
Arm wrestling has root in my childhood. When I was a child, I saw my grandfather who was powerful man, pulling with friend and other memeber of family. I saw him and I wish I were as powerful as he was. But as professional armwrestler I started it about 2 years ago. I started it with a championship in our province without any knowledge about rules and how I was standing behind the armwrestling table. But after a victory and gold medals, I have decided to be good armwrestler in our country at least.
