did you start armwrestling?
Mountain Regional Championships
did you place?
2 matches, lost 2 matches
weight classes do you typically pull?
||I am semi-retired
from competition but pull now and again just because I love the sport.
In my competitive days, I pulled in the 169 or 176 lb class depending
on the organization. I now pull in the 198 lb class (I hope to get back
down to 176).
titles have you won, at any level?
- A few titles in CO with the WPAA (now AUSA (2)), AAA (3), CPAA (now defunct (2))
- Went to Kansas City to the WPAA World
Championships (at the time, the WPAA was the premier armwrestling
association) and felt that at the national level I probably would never
win a national or world title. But I fell in love with refereeing and
have refereed over thirty WPAA/AUSA national championships and more
local armwrestling matches than I can recall.
goals do you have for yourself in armwrestling?
- My goal today is to promote the sport of
armwrestling and to help in training of armwrestlers of all skill
levels. I will also pull and ref from time to time as long as I'm able.
do you do for a living?
||Retired since 2004 from an HVAC supervisor position at the Colorado School of Mines
hobbies do you enjoy?
||Jeeping, painting, weight training, and of course armwrestling
||Mother, sister, and my wife of 30 years Rosalind
||There have been so
many through the years that it is impossible to pick just one. My list
would have to include Kevin Fanger, Brad Balderston, Dave Patton, and
Harley Maynard, but there are many others too numerous to list.
do you train for armwrestling?
||I work out with
weights at least three times a week and try to pull at least once a
week. I do train my whole body, but I train more heavy on armwrestling
