About Glenn Bengtsson
Nicknamed Glenn ‘The Project’ Bengtsson for a reason, the Swedish middleweight possess all the capabilities required to become one of the world’s elite pullers, and by training everyday with fellow Swede and 2016 WAL Left Hand Middleweight Champion Niklas Nannestad, Glenn is taking the right steps in doing so.
When training Bengtsson and Nannestad use each other’s different styles of pulling to practice and improve their techniques and weakness. They compete against each other regularly to get a feel for competition in the buildup to events. Away from armwrestling the two are great friends and work hard to develop and build armwrestling in their home country.
Glenn is husband to WAL Women’s competitor Erika Bengtsson, and since 2015 the duo have been on a mission to ensure that the Bengtsson name is recognized and respected at the top of armwrestling’s elite.
Erika and Glenn live together in Almhult Sweden and have one young child.
