Atlantic Canadian Championships
The 2013 Atlantic Canadian Championships
were a great success with 85 entries in total.
Although Nova Scotia won the team points handily, both New Brunswick and
Prince Edward Island showed up with small but very strong teams.
Jeremie Hachey of New Brunswick came back after some time off and showed
complete dominance with both arms.
The PEI team was lead by Charlie McGeoghegan but had plenty of strong
accompaniment from the MacDonald clan.
Nova Scotia's Randy Bayers keeps getting better with every passing
tournament and not only won his right and left hand classes but jumped up
into the next weight division for two more top 3 placings.
Subway 2013 Provincial Championships
and Will Sarty were the big winners at the Subway 2013
Nova Scotia Arm Wrestling Championships. Will took the 154lb right along
with the 165lb right and left hand classes. Randy continued his dominance in
the middleweight classes. Mark MacPhail took the right hand open class and
the overall title while Shaun Deveau captured his first Provincial title
winning the left hand open class. Tim Pye squeaked out a win in the strong
hand hold title
The first tournament of 2013 had a lot of great
matches except for the Battle of the Atlantic which saw mostly straight
match blowouts. Three of the belts were won by the challenger with the
champion holding onto three. However the triple elimination made up for it
with lots of exciting matches. Randy Bayers was on fire as he went without a
loss throughout the BOTA Middleweight Championship and triple elimination,
then went on to take a second and third in the triple elimination
The amateur classes though not large proved plenty exciting as well with
several new faces in the crowd
Split Crow, Truro
It's been almost 6 years since we've had a tournament
with 74 entries. With stacked amateur classes and Battle of the Atlantic
crowning all new champions it was an exciting day of armwrestling. We
also raised over $200 for the IWK kids.
The Annual General Meeting was held after the competition and it was decided
that an annual membership fee would be levied. The membership fee will be
$25 per year. This is applicable to Elite and Battle of the Atlantic
armwrestlers. It will be optional for all Amateur armwrestlers. Everyone
that enters a tournament as an amateur will be considered associate members.
Popeye's Pulling for the Cure
One of the best attended tournaments of the
year proved to be a real barn burner in many of the classes. The elite heavy
weight classes had some great matches. Mark MacPhail and Ralphie Bayers had
some great hook matches. Then there was some more battles between MacPhail
Also the amateurs showed there is lots of potential coming up through
Over $250 was raised for Cancer Society.
