Arm wrestling is a niche sport full of specialists—but they get the job done very effectively. Legendary champion John Brzenk and rising star Travis Bagent proved that point by taking on any and all comers at the 2009 CrossFit Games, and neither lost a single match in Aromas.
Brzenk is the subject of Sevan Matossian’s award-winning film Pulling John, and Specialization finds the director back in the world of arm wrestling as Bagent seeks to unseat Canadian Devon Larratt, the world’s No. 1 ranked arm wrestler, at the Mike Gould Classic held March 27, 2010, in Oshawa, Ont.
Both Bagent and Larratt are CrossFitters, but at the end of the day they have one goal: pinning another man’s wrist to the table.
