Finland Finnish Armsport Association A brief history:
Finland had big, successful teams at the European and World Championships in the early 2000s. After that, from about 2007-2008, internal disputes weakened the situation, and after 2012, the majority of Finnish armwrestlers, I included, were not allowed on the teams. However, we were not inactive, in fact we did a huge amount of work and finally in 2016 we received a reward: Armwrestling Federation where I was a president at the time was accepted as a member of the Finnish Olympic Committee, Armwrestling Federations reunited and now all the best were able to represent our country.
Under the auspices of the Olympic Committee, we have had a great opportunity to collaborate with other sports federations. Referee training has been effective and coaching training has begun.
