2008 Ranking Tournament at "The Pond" in Truro

The Nova Scotia Arm Wrestling Association went back to the Ponderosa Tavern in Truro for our Year End Ranking Tournament. We had many surprises with several upsets and a number of jaw dropping matches! However, the day belonged to Sylvio Bourque with complete domination in the left hand categories.   

Sylvio captured both the Light and Heavyweight divisions in convincing style. No one could even slow him down.
Sylvio looks to be in fine shape as he readies himself for the Worlds in just 2 weeks! A couple of our heavyweights were absent this year but we can tell you that Mark MacPhail is preparing for the Worlds and just couldn't make this tournament. Good Luck to Mark and Sylvio in BC!
