Here is Allan Heinricks. who just won a gold medal at the Canadian National Armwrestling championships

Local Armwrestler Allan Heinricks has once again proved his power on the national stage, earning gold in the Grand Masters category at Canadian Nationals in Ottawa Sept. 2 – 5.

Heinricks says it is his ninth national win, in a sport that he  has been competing in for 14 years.

During nationals Heinricks qualified for worlds, which will see him jetting off to Kzahakstan, in Central Asia, in November.

The top two finishers in each event earn the right to represent their country at worlds, and Heinricks said after his last World competition in Nevada that he wanted to take part in another one.

“Always the best part is meeting the people,” Heinricks said of his love for competition.

As a part of team Canada, Heinricks said what he is most looking forward to is winning a first place, and having the  Canadian National anthem played in honour of his win.

This will be his fourth time attending the World Championships.
