About Tamara Mitts
After witnessing a Canadian National Armwrestling Championships when she was 15, Tamara Mitts was immediately hooked, “I loved every minute of it the adrenaline, the competitiveness, the strength and ultimately the glory of winning” she says. Two years later Tamara graduated high school and started competing immediately. Fast forward 2018 Tamara has been competing for 32 years and doesn’t see her armwrestling career ending any time soon.
Tamara is a mother to three very athletic very competitive children, “My children all play around on the table with me but when it comes to my competitions they are right there in my corner yelling and supporting and driving me to be the best” she says. The “Crazy Canuck” has travelled all over the world for armwrestling competitions and has had some great experiences and met some fantastic friends along the way. Tamara holds two WAF World titles and Two Arnold Classic titles, as well as multiple Canadian National titles and provincial titles on both her left and right arm. Tamara is proud to be the only Canadian ever to hold National titles in four different weight categories and hold USA open National titles. “I am always looking to challenge myself and better myself and of course, getting stronger in every way is right up there!” she explains.
Tamara has recently been inducted into the Ontario and Canadian Halls of Fame for Armwrestling.
