Brute Strength is key factor in Old-Fashioned Sit-Down Arm Wrestling Event
Flushing, NY February 10, 2015 – The New York Arm Wrestling Association (NYAWA) announced today that the 2015 NYC Sit-Down Arm Wrestling Championships will be held on Sunday, March 1, 2015 beginning at 1:00 p.m., at Cheap Shots Sports Bar, 149-05 Union Turnpike Flushing in Queens, NY 11367. Spectators’ admission is $5.00. Competition is open to the public and the event has no residency requirements. Entrance fees: $25 for amateurs, $30 for pros and $10.00 for women. The Proud Sponsors are Quantum Wellness Spa of Syosset, LI/qwcli.org, Ironmind.com/Captains of Crush Grippers and Cheap Shots Sports Bar.
The NYAWA expects more than 80 men and women in 22 right- and left-hand weight classes, including two men’s masters 45+ and 50+ years’ old categories, and three women’s classes. Contestants will be competing for the chance to win the 2015 New York State Sit-Down Arm Wrestling Championships. Weigh-in and registration opens at 9:30 A.M. and closes at 12:50 P.M. Gold, Silver, Bronze medals and certificates will be awarded in each weight class. The day’s overall strongest males (right and left-handed) will receive &100 cash prizes and male and female MVP’s will receive special MVP Awards. In addition, Ironmind’s Captains of Crush Hand Grippers awards will be awarded to the day’s strongest men and women. Teams are also competing from the five NYC Boroughs, Long Island far beyond. The team trophy is tallied by most points scored.
“The NYC Sit Down will surely produce winners who are the best brute strength arm wrestlers, since little technique can be performed in the sit down position,” said Gene Camp, founder and president of the 38-year old New York Arm Wrestling Association. “This event is going to be very exciting to watch because many previous stand-up arm wrestling winners are competing without being able to use their signature techniques, in this one-on-one brute strength, sit-down championship.” Camp also pointed out that last year’s Sit-Down Championship was canceled due to a snow storm. “We hope for good weather on March 1, 2015.” Camp, added.
