2009 Ranking Tournament

Arm Wrestler of the Year!

he 2009 Ranking tournament provided plenty of action with may upsets. Randy Bayers proved that he is someone to be reckoned with in the future as he took the very competitive right lightweight class. In the left lightweight class it looked like Paul Graham was on his way to victor after beating Mark Crouse and heavily favoured Sylvio Bourque. However Mark Crouse changed tactics and came back to win the class.

In the heavyweight classes Mark MacPhail was the man of the day taking both classes. However it was no  walk in the park. Mark and Shawn Ross had a battle that extended to the 6th and final match. In the left hand Wayde Graves upset both Shaun Deveau and Shawn Ross and then stopped Mark MacPhail in the final.

The year end awards were handed out after the competition:
The following are the  award winners:
Rookie of the Year: Ralphie Bayers

Most Improved: Terrence Wrigley
Most Sportsmanlike: Shawn Ross
Arm Wrestler of the Year: Shaun Deveau
