Teenager takes top prize in Lebanese arm wrestling competition

Fifteen-year-old George Bejjani became the youngest contestant to ever win the title in Lebanon’s arm-wrestling championship in the +90kgs category for men. In a large arena set up for the competition a crowd gathered to watch enthusiastically cheering on Bejjani as he raised his arm triumphantly after his winning match. The games took place in the Lebanese city of Zahle where men and women strained to find the strength to overcome their opponents for the win. The event crowned winners in different categories including men over 90kgs, men under 90kgs and the women’s champion. Five women finalists competed for the 2019 title, with 16-year old Jessica Bejjani crowned champion. She encouraged women to try out the sport, rather than shy away from it.
