10th Africa Armwrestling Championships in Mali

THE national armwrestling team, the Golden Arms, at the weekend added to the all-time medal haul by any federation after grabbing 18 medals at the 10th Africa Armwrestling Championships in Bamako, Mali.

The Golden Arms, who went into the 2019 Championships as the defending champions, proudly managed 11 gold, five silver and two bronze medals to secure third position out of 12 countries.

After vehemently protesting the entries by hosts Mali and being denied playing in its best selected category, the Ghanaians participated in the two-day Championships under protest.

Grace Commey defeated a long list of Malians and a Guinean to win double Gold in the Women’s Junior and Senior 50kg category and placed fourth in the Youth 65kg, while Prince Afum and Aziz Abdul Wahab also grabbed double gold.
