About Angie Rose
After winning the 1994 Wrist Wrestling Lightweight Championships on both hands Angie Rose took a 16-year break from professional competition. During that time, she turned her focus to raising, training and racing Barrel Horses, and It was not until Angie watched the hit armwrestling reality TV show Game of Arms, that she decided to get back into the sport. “That show gave me that familiar adrenaline rush to start pulling again” she says, “after watching it, I turned my focus to training again like never before and started competing with WAL.” In 2017 Angie dominated the women’s Middleweight division, and lifted the Hammer as 2017 WAL Women’s Left-Hand Middleweight Champion. There is no arguing that despite her 16-year absence, Angie is still at the very top of the women’s armwrestling elite.
Angie is married with three children. She credits her husband for having a huge influence "Meeting and marrying my husband, definitely brought out the best in me. He has always been so supportive with my passions and goals, particularly with armwrestling." Away from armwrestling, Angie enjoys hiking, weight lifting, exploring old heritage sites and photography.
