Announces Anssi Ainali: «We will come to Poland with 19 armwrestlers, which is the largest amount we have ever sent from Finland to the European Championships.» ()
The European Armwrestling Championships are ahead of us. The Finns are ready! Here is a short history - what has happened in the Finnish Federation in recent years. I invite!
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.
In addition to this, our Armwrestling Federation has purchased several dozen armwrestling tables and other accessories from Mazurenko Armwrestling Equipment Company to ensure good training conditions for our athletes. This has also allowed for more joint training between clubs.
As a member of the Finnish Olympic Committee, our athletes can be tested in tournaments and tests during the training period are also possible.
Finland's representation in Rumia Poland 2019
Women and Masters have usually brought the most medals to Finland, but I strongly believe that this time, in addition to this, new names from the men`s Senior classes will also bring couple medals to home.
Best Regards, Anssi Ainali Vice-president of Finnish Armsport Association.
