Pakistan’s Muhammad Inam has made yet another breakthrough with his wrestling career, this time bagging a silver medal in Johannesburg, South Africa.
After the Asian Beach Games 2016 games where he won a gold and silver, followed by another gold medal in the World Beach Wrestling Championship that was held in Turkey this October, the wrestling champion seems to have scored a hat-trick in his own right.
In the Commonwealth Senior Wrestling Championship last year in Singapore too, Inam won thirteen medals (totaling two silver and eleven bronze medals!).
About Muhammad Inam
Muhammad Inam is 25, approximately 5’10 feet. He weighs 86 kilograms and hails from Gujranwala Pakistan. He won the 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medal in free-style and Greco-Roman wrestling in India.
During the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship, Inam scored three against six in his round against India’s Somweer Singh, but rebounded in the next round with a clean six to zero against his other Indian opponent, Arjudeen Airudeen.
Pakistan’s other medals include four bronze wins in the 57 kg, 70 kg, 86 kg and 97 kg weight classes brought in by Muhammad Bilal, Ghulam Ghaus, Umair Ahmed and Tayyab Raza.
Overall, this trip to South Africa seems to have been good for Pakistan’s wrestling sports.
