Jordan’s Wrestlers are heading to one of the world’s hot beds for the sport next month to compete in the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Art Games.
The Central Asian country of Turkmenistan is hosting Ashgabat 2017 from September 17–27, with the region renowned for producing some of the best Wrestlers in the world.
But Jordan, under the watchful eyes of Yahya Abu Tabeekh and Ramzi Al Murafi, know what to expect and are heading to Bulgaria to train prior to the event.
“Our guys will be up against some of the best Wrestlers in the world so we hope that by training against some of the best Europeans in Bulgaria we will be better prepared,” said Abu Tabeekh.
Jordan is sending its biggest ever delegation to an Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games with more than 100 athletes competing in 13 sports including 3x3 Basketball, Ju Jitsu, Wrestling, Taekwondo, Billiards and Snooker, Muaythai, Weightlifting, Indoor Athletics, Kickboxing, Swimming, Futsal, Chess and eSport.
