Armlifting USA is another Must See Event at this year’s Olympia Expo


The World Armlifting Championships will be held in 2022 Mr. Olympia this year. There are a bunch of talented strong lifters competing at this year’s World Championships. Let’s do some of them right now.

On the men’s side, in his debut at the World Championships are Carl Myerscough; he is a 2012 Olympian and English national record holder in the shot put; he will threaten the all-time world records in every discipline in this contest. At 6’10” and a very athletic 360 pounds, he looks very impressive. Check out the 3 lifters appearing in this contest who all won World Championship medals while competing in Russia: former WSM competitor Odd Haugen, 5-time Canadian national champion Eric Roussin, and 4-time bronze medalist of the World Armlifting Championships Riccardo Magni.

Lifters in the women’s division who have already demonstrated their excellence in Armlifting USA competitions include Sarah Chappelow, Anna Wilkins, and Ashlee Munsey. These lifters all hit big lifts in competition and could possibly break their weight class records in the lifts contested this year. An upcoming lifter to watch is Tammy McClure. He has posted some great lifts on his Instagram account and it will be exciting to see him lift in person in this competition.

There are 4 events at the World Armlifting Championships this year:

  • Double Overhand Axle Deadlift
  • 3″ Country Crush Blocks
  • 3″ Saxon Bar
  • 2″ Country Crush Deadlift

All events are for maximum weight in an unlimited test of the rising bar format. We will know for sure who has the strongest grip because they will be the last man/woman standing.
