When Rod Sellers tore his bicep in an arm wrestling tournament, he figured he would retire after years of success. But all it took was his son’s newly found interest in the sport and his inspiration was reignited.
The 52-year-old Dicastal employee has been competing in arm wrestling tournaments since 1982. Currently, he is the belt holder for Michigan Arms’ 198-pound, right-handed class. He also qualified for a worlds tournament — the top level of arm wrestling. But had it not been for his son getting into the sport after watching some of his father’s arm wrestling friends compete on AMC’s “Game of Arms” reality show three years ago, none of Rod’s recent accomplishments would have ever happened.
