Sarah Backman is one of the most popular female Arm Wrestlers out there. She was born in Stockholm, Sweden and started Arm Wrestling at a young age of 14. She was born on 8th December 1991 and she is currently 28-years old.

Once she got into the sport, it wasn’t hard for her to climb up through the ranks of Arm Wrestling. She got into the sport after being introduced to fellow Arm Wrestler Malin Kleinsmith in her first-ever training session.
