CAN WRESTLERS MAKE ASIAN IMPACT?
Jan 03, 2018
Jordan’s top male wrestlers have come together for intensive training ahead of next month’s Asian Wrestling Championships taking place in Kyrgyzstan.
Former Arab Champion Yahia Abu Tabeekh is leading the training and believes his athletes will initially need to step up their fitness before the focus turns to technique.
It promises to be a big year for Wrestling with Jordan eyeing up the Asian Youth Championships with a view to trying to qualify a wrestler or two for the Youth Olympic Games and World Championships later this year.
The Jordan Wrestling Championships take place on January 16, providing an opportunity for those not in the national squad to make their claim.
