Australian Team - 37th World Armwrestling Championships 2015
With breaking news of the 37th World Armwrestling Championships to be hosted by Malaysia in 2015, Australia has never been more primed to send a large contingent to the world stage.
As many of you know the WAF World Championship 2015 will be in Malaysia next year. Given the close proximity to Australia and relatively low cost of attending, the AAF is expecting to send a large team. Selection of the team will be placed firstly on results at this years Nationals and if places aren't filled, then on rankings. Please read the requirements for qualification below carefully as these apply to anyone who wishes to represent Australia at the 37th World Armwrestling Championships and there will be no exceptions.
Nationals Qualification for Australian Team
- A requirement to nominate for the team is AAF Full Membership (before competing at Nationals)
- At Nationals registration you must nominate yourself on the registration form for Australian Team Selection.
- You must be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident and willing to represent the Australia Team only.
- Selection will be based on weight classes placings, you can not compete in a higher weight class and then nominate for a lighter class eg Competitors in the Under 100kg class can't nominate for under 90kg. Where an Australian weight class represents 2 WAF classes (because of 5kg increments) eg Under 80kg covers WAF Under 75kg & Under 80kg, the highest place getter selects their class preference until positions are filled.
- If after Nationals are completed and all competitors that have nominated have had an opportunity for selection and we still have positions on the team, then selection will be based on rankings.
- Australian Team selection will be announced on December 15, 2014.
