Expressing satisfaction with his performance, Antonio shared his optimism for a bright future in the sport and his goal to facilitate opportunities for fellow Antiguans to compete abroad.This marked Antonio’s third international competition since he began arm wrestling three years ago.
The event in Spain, like his previous one in Dubai, was sponsored by Cool and Smooth, with additional support from Automotive Art and Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister, Gaston Browne.
Antonio will soon promote the sport in the United States before returning home on November 17.
