State cham­pi­onship power to her el­bow

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport - Holly Thompson

Man­jimup’s Cindy Gi­bellini trav­elled to Bal­divis Recre­ation Cen­tre to take part in the WA Arm Wrestling Cham­pi­onship and re­turned home with the ti­tle.

“I’ve been arm wrestling since I was lit­tle, I used to mess around with the other kids just for fun,” Ms Gi­bellini said.

“I prac­tice with my dad now a lot too, just to keep me on my toes.”

Gi­bellini said she found out about the State com­pe­ti­tion through an email sent to her by White Knuckle Pro­duc­tions.

“I read the email and de­cided to go for it and en­ter,” she said.

Gi­bellini was un­de­feated through­out the com­pe­ti­tion which took place on Oc­to­ber 20, win­ning ev­ery round she com­peted in.

“Be­cause I was un­de­feated, the lady I versed in the fi­nals had to beat me twice to win the ti­tle,” she said. “She didn’t man­age to beat me even once.”

Gi­bellini said she would love to con­tinue com­pet­ing.

“I seem to be quite good at it all and it’s so much fun so why not,” she said

She said her next step would most likely be head­ing over to Ade­laide for the next com­pe­ti­tion.
