Jordan’s wrestlers are on their way to Central Asia early to prepare for the upcoming Asian Championships being held from February 28-March 4.
The four-strong team will camp in Kyrgyzstan, the country that will also host the event. Ahmad Dahshan (72kg), Sultan Al Damn (77kg), Ibrahim Arrar (63kg) and Hamzeh Audallah (130kg) are all expected to push for medals, and travel with experienced former champion Yahiya Abu Tabeekh as Head Coach.
“We have been training hard at the Olympic Preparation Centre in Amman which has helped us focus on our fitness,” he said.
During the build-up phase for the Asian event, Abu Tabeekh said his chargers will compete against other wrestlers in friendly bouts.
