Rose of Kamloops squashes Black Scorpion at World Armwrestling League event

Angie Rose went down 1-0 in a best-of-five tilt last month at World Armwrestling League 502 in Baltimore, but the professional puller from Kamloops was in no mood to give up.

Michelle Dougan (the Black Scorpion) of the U.S. was beaten by Rose in three consecutive rounds, a series of defeats that cost her the match, which was billed as a clash between two of the top middleweight women in North America.

Rose, a practical nurse who turned pro last June, improved to 11-6, while Dougan fell to 26-9.
