“We had a very busy contest day [Saturday]; 22 competitors for the British Grip Champs, and 8 armwrestling supermatches too – so we had to keep things moving!,” David Horne reported to IronMind.

“This is the second biggest British Grip Champs since its start in 1991. We had an armwrestling supermatch after each grip event, and this worked very well. The grip guys loved watching the professional armwrestling, and many armwrestlers got stuck into the grip contest, did very well, and can’t wait for the next comp!
“Some of these even carried on after a tough supermatch. Also both hands were tested in the grip contest, so there was no hiding for a tired arm!
“Anyway a great day was had by all, and even after a long day of competing the guys still did another hour plus of armwrestling training and grip stuff!
