ISLAMABAD: Pakistani wrestler Muhammad Inam Butt on Monday appealed to the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) to send national wrestlers abroad for training for the 2018 Asian Games to take place in Jakarta and Palembang, Indonesia from Aug 18 to Sept 2.
“We must not take Asian Games easy and should practise with all our might for the event. Our wrestlers must be sent to Bulgaria, Russia and Ukraine for training for the Asian Games,” Inam said while talking to APP.
“We need to participate in the 86kg weight category in the Asian Games.
“Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, China and Japan are also participating in the Olympics. Therefore, we must not take the Asian Games easy,” Inam stressed.
