More than 100 players gathered in Shanghai to fight for the 7th Shanghai Arm Wrestling Open, the first in China following the auspices of the Professional Armwrestling League's international ranking system.

Unlike other parts of the world, arm-wrestling is not recognised as a serious sport in China, where it has more of a reputation as a testosterone-fueled showdown between inebriated bar patrons.
