Vancouver Armwrestling Club Profile

Anthony Dall'Antonia

Anthony started pulling in April of 2002 thanks to his brother Dante meeting National Champion Bernie Lemay. 

Growing up he always enjoyed armwrestling and was very good at it. After hearing about Bernie, he and Dante went to practice and got beat. They weren't used to losing so after that they started to train once a week, bought and built a few tables and then started to host practice. Anthony also hosted the 2012 National Championship in Richmond BC and currently hosts the Vancouver Armwrestling Club's weekly practice out of his gym in Burnaby. He has become one of Canada's top pound for pound pullers and holds the following Canadian records:

~ most national titles in the open class (23)

~ most consecutive years of winning a national title with the same arm (12-Left Arm)
