Armwrestling. The strongest people of the Urals

Finals of the "URAL CUP" and the Sverdlovsk region championship

Arm wrestling, also known as «arm fighting» is a sport involving two participants. Each places one arm on a surface with their elbows bent and touching the surface, and they grip each other’s hand. The goal is to pin the other’s arm onto the surface, the winner’s arm over the loser’s arm. In the early years different names were interchangeably used to describe the same sport. Organized arm wrestling tournaments arose in the 1950s.

While not an Olympic sport, armwrestling is popular in many parts of the world.
