The 2022 National Armwrestling Championship ended with some exciting and thrilling performances from the various regional pullers as they battled against each other at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Elsewhere in the Female Heavyweight category, Florence Mensah took the competition on a soft note as she finished off all her opponents to be crowned champion, while Afia Kumah grabbed second place with Rashida Abass who also finished in the third position.
The Men’s Lightweight Category was also a delight to watch as the boys were separated from the men with Aziz Wahab and Wisdom Abromekyi who displayed some top-class performances in a tight rivalry showdown.
At the end of the contest, Aziz Wahab was crowned champion with Wisdom Abromekyi and David Arafat taking the second and third positions.
Edward Asamoah was declared winner of the Men’s Middleweight category, showing all, he had to beat Issah Kouyah and Prince Afum who were also top competitors when it comes to arm wrestling in Ghana.
