ROME: Pakistani wrestlers Mohammad Inam and Zaman Anwar, currently in Rome, have got Greece visas and they will proceed to Greece on Wednesday (tomorrow) to feature in the Beach Wrestling World Series to be held there on September 10-11.
“Yes we have got visas and tomorrow we will be moving towards Greece to feature in the World Series,” the country’s premier wrestler Mohammad Inam said on Tuesday.
“I have got gold in Italy’s World Series the other day and now God has given me another golden chance to lift another medal and the nation should keep me in its prayers,” Inam said.
The Youth Olympics bronze medallist Inayatullah and manager Musaddiq Hussain have returned home, Pakistan Wrestling Federation (PWF) confirmed on Tuesday. Inayat did not impress in the Rome World Series in which he competed in the 70kg competition.
According to sources he was not in top form as he had returned to the international circuit after a long time due to an injury. He will feature in the Beach Wrestling World Championship which will be held in Constanta, Romania, on September 23-24.
“We are thankful to PSB, Dr Femida Mirza, Foreign Ministry, Pakistan’s embassy in Rome and Greece who did a good job and ensured for us visas of Greece,” Inam said.
Inam the other day added to his feathers when he defeated a Ukrainian wrestler Oleksii in the final of the 90 kg competition to claim the gold medal in the Beach Wrestling World Series in Rome.
This was the fourth world level medal for Inam, who also remained two-time world champion after having won two world titles successively in 2017 and 2018 World Championships in Turkey before claiming the inaugural World Beach Games title in 2019 in Doha.
