Once again it was the famous Croatian arm wrestling family, the Kogl’s from Krizevci in central Croatia, who dominated for Croatia by collecting five of the six medals. Father Dražen and son Marko each won two gold medals, whilst mother Blaženka was not to be outdone and collected one herself.
“Our favourite of course are the medals our son won,” said the proud parents.
Antonio Mašić won Croatia’s sixth medal, while Italian Franko Lamparelli was the overall winner of the right-handed arm wrestle, and Kaloyan Petrov from Bulgaria in the left-hand category.
In the lower categories, it was Kazakstan who dominated. Kazakstan were well represented with arm wrestling one of the most popular sports in the country.
