An arm wrestler from Grande Prairie is in New Orleans this weekend for an international competition. Marc Guay will be at the House of Blues as part of the World Armwrestling League Southern Classic, also called the Battle in the Bayou.
This is one of four regional events leading up to the championships, which are held in Las Vegas at the end of June. If Guay makes it that far, he will compete for $100,000 in prize money.
He is currently ranked 6th in the superheavyweight right arm division and 11th overall in the World Armwrestling League standings.
