Video Wonder: Intense Women’s Armwrestling Battle

Two competitors employ a vocally assaultive technique during the European Armwrestling Championship.

Allow us to introduce you, if you have not already been acquainted, to the equal parts badass and petrifying sport of competitive armwrestling.

The above athletes, competing in the left-handed women’s division of the European Armwrestling Championship, employ an interesting tactic: they both begin to scream maniacally when the going gets tough. 

If you’re interested in seeing the action live, this year’s championship takes place in Bucharest at the end of May.
