“We expect some of the city’s best athletes to compete at the 34th Annual White Castle Queensboro Championships which is the oldest and most popular of all theborough championships, because the first official Queens Arm Wrestling event was at the old Sunnyside Gardens in 1977,” Gene Camp, the founder and president of the New York Arm Wrestling Association, said. “We are also excited about the Queens Junior and Novice Arm Wrestling addition, which is always a great audience crowd pleaser and a lot of fun for kids and adult beginners"
