“In these 2017 World Championships we hope one more time to prepare everything for the ‘next level’. Yesterday, Eric Roussin from Canada wrote to me and said that his will 100% [once again] come.
“We hope this year we will have 18-20 countries [represented] and we hope its will be a great show!,” said Suhovarov.
Armlifting, which tests grip strength, began with the Rolling Thunder and has expanded to include the Captains of Crush (CoC) Silver Bullet and Apollon’s Axle double overhand deadlift as well, and APL’s Dmitriy Suhovarov has been a prime mover of this competition format for testing grip strength.
