10 countries are expected to participate in the championship which has medals at stake as well as bragging rights.

Already officials from the World Armwrestling body and African Armwrestling Federation are in Ghana for the event, and they called on the President of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC), Ben Nunoo Mensah and his vice Paul Atchoe.

All officials have arrived and the Hathiramani Sports Hall is set for the championship with the Malian team reporting first.

According to Charles Osei Asibey, he is looking forward to a very successful event that can make the officials glad that Ghana can be chosen to host the world championship, which can also boast tourism and business in Ghana and Africa.
