The event saw over 100 students from IIT Bombay taking part in it. It was a unique tournament in the sense that the guys were going to Arm Wrestle six-time national champion and Pro Panja League’s Over 65 Kg women’s champion Chetna Sharma. It was a very interesting format in which the guys were given a chance to beat a girl and win INR 10,000 cash prize. All four male finalists had a tremendous height and weight advantage over the Pro Panja Champion. The male finalists were extremely confident heading into their bout against Chetna Sharma, but despite their best efforts, they weren’t even able to move Chetna’s hands. It was a relative cakewalk for Chetna as she cruised to victory with ease and without much effort.

The top 4 ranked male athletes were Sachin Sonage, Luvkush, Aryan, and Manish. 

In the women’s match-up, Almaas Unnu Salna also suffered a similar fate as the male finalist. While Almaas had a relatively easy time cruising through the women’s athletes of IIT Bombay in the prelims, it was going to be an extremely uphill task taking on Chetna Sharma. While the IITian tried hard, it was an easy victory for the national champion.

The Arm Wrestling event organized by Pro Panja League was also the biggest crowd-puller of the Aavhan event. The atmosphere was indeed unique as most IITians were witnessing a professionally set up Arm Wrestling event for the first time.
