I wonder if there was an underlying medical condition.

This happens all the time. There are compilations of people breaking their arms while arm wrestling. It's hard to find a video online of people arm wrestling where someone doesn't break their arm.

Broken arms are one of the risks.

I will never arm wrestle again.. I've seen too many dislocations and broken arms online. I think they need to show a loop of those videos as a PSA to kids in say... 6th grade. I guarantee that would be a more effective "Stop doing this" than ANY other school PSA (smoking, abstinence, etc..) currently being run.

Also on the banned list is skateboarding, wrestling, field sports, tag, skating, playground equipment, bb guns, paintball, boating, swimming, and basically anything else that might be fun. You might be badly hurt. Now go get daddy another beer and then go read quietly in your room.

And the other lady (the one who broke the arm) fainted?

At the risk of playing to stereotypes, I'd think the type of person who takes part in arm wrestling competitions is not the sort of person who faints when shown something disturbing.

But don't get fat just sitting around all day. Damn kids today are such loaf abouts.

You have to push your own arm hard enough to break it when arm wrestling. If you don't push back as hard your arm won't break but you'll lose. If you push really hard and are stronger than your opponent you'll win. If you push as hard as you can and nothing moves you can break your arm, but since your opponent wasn't moving you might as well have been pushing hard on a concrete wall.

Protip:  adults really should not arm wrestle.  When that Stallone movie came out there was an epidemic of broken arms in the city i live near.  It has to do with the torsion strength built up when people lock up, then inevitably, someone suddenly throws all they have into an effort to win.  Snaps the bones.  Just don't do it.

No reading either.  You might get a paper cut that gets infected and kills you.  And no computers / mobiles / e-readers either.  Do you know how filthy those are?  You'll get septicemia and die.

So go to your room and gaze wistfully out of the window.  But don't sit too close to the window.  Do you know how dangerous glass shards are?  And don't sit for too long or you might get DVT and... you guessed it... die.
