Kersten ‘Tattoist’ Mercieca has just placed Malta on the arm-wrestling professional competition map after going up against other high class athletes in Toronto, Canada.
Kersten represented our island despite having no financial support for his passion, and managed to hold Allen ‘The Hitman’ Ford for a couple of rounds.
Despite his 4-2 loss, Kersten expressed his gratitude at being able to compete in the competition, telling his competitor that he learned a lot from his experience.
Ford himself congratulated Kersten for his determination and skill, saying: ‘Kersten you put Malta on the map this weekend for arm wrestling. Great work! Great things to come for you in this sport.’
Well done Kersten!
