There was a buzz since several days in Pakistan that the nation would claim a couple of gold medals in the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship freestyle competitions held in Johannesburg. However, national grapplers from Pakistan only acquired one silver and four bronze medals during the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship. On the other day, Pakistan had achieved six bronze in Greco Roman style competitions and this way the country has completed with one silver and 10 bronze medal in the end. Mohammad Inam, one of the premier wrestlers from the country had to be satisfied with the only silver medal in 92 kilogramme competitions where Airudeen had been defeated at 6-0 by him.
Earlier, Inam, the gold medallist of 2010 Commonwealth Games had been defeated by Somveer of India and he grabbed the gold medal. There were only three players in the grouping by that time. According to the report from ‘The News’, Arshad Sattar, the Secretary of Pakistan Wrestling Federation (PWF) remarked that Inam had failed to achieve the gold medal for Pakistan. He had a 3-0 edge during his initial wrestle, however he had failed to maintain it and that caused the incurable harm.
Tayyab Raza from Pakistan has been awarded a bronze medal in the 97 kg competition with Stephen Samuel from New Zealand. Afterwards in the qualification round, Tayyab had beat Joe Samuel Hendry from England at 10-0. During the semi finals, Tayyab had been defeated at 0-4 against Roublejit Singh from India. Umair Ahmed also has managed a bronze medal, when he defeated Hein Jakobus of South Africa at 11-0 during the wrestle of 86 kg competitions. The defeat of Ahmed Butt in the 125 kg competition has harmed the achievements of the nation.
