The 2018 tour to Australia saw a very well prepared New Zealand ArmWrestling team taking part in the Arnold Classic Games, Australia - Melbourne. The top armwrestlers from each country battled it out to see who is top dog on the day. Team New Zealand walked away with 10 medals. Congratulations to all the armwrestlers - you have done New Zealand and the host proud.
The NZAF would like to thank all the supporters, friends & family. Without your support from training, prep work, helping with travel arrangements, locking the fridge (weight cutters) and just being there this would not be possible.
To the Australia Armwrestling Federation thank you for your hospitality and congratulations on very well run event. See you guys next year.
