Ukraine, one of the bedrock countries in armlifting from the earliest days of the grip-strength sport, is holding its 2016 national championships October 15–16, featuring three disciplines: Rolling Thunder, Apollon’s Axle and the CoC Silver Bullet, APL officer Dmitriy Suhovarov reported to IronMind.
“The principal organizer is Vyasheslav Malyushitsiy, [who has] been a main referee in World Armlifting Championships, and he also has his a national referee category in IWF weightlifting.
“We want to also offer IronMind certifications on Captains of Crush grippers, the Red Nail, and the Crushed-to-Dust! Challenge,” said Suhovarov, so if you are interested in achieving any of those distinctions, please read the rules and be ready to deliver your top performance.
