Rob Bigwood, Vegan, Takes Gold at Big Apple Grapple

Rob Bigwood, vegan & animal rights activist, took gold in the 35th Annual Big Apple Grapple (ironically sponsored by White Castle). In a recent interview on the Intellectualist, Rob said of arm wrestling:

Professional Arm Wrestling is cool! Too many people think it’s a bar sport where out of shape meat heads growl at each other over a table, but it’s the complete opposite. Arm wrestling is a legitimate sport that takes serious training, dedication, technique and focus. It’s also extremely intensive on the body, muscles, joints and ligaments. This sport hasn’t been tainted by money like most others and it’s one on one, if you lose there is nobody else to blame but yourself.
