ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s ace wrestler Mohammad Inam wants to train in Russia in order to prepare himself for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics qualifiers.

“The three qualifiers for the Olympics would be held in February, March and April. The Asian Wrestling Championship is scheduled to be held in India in February 2020, then the two World Olympic qualifiers would be held in March and April in China and Bulgaria, respectively,” the 30-year-old Inam told APP.

The Gujranwala-born Inam said if the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) could send him, another wrestler Mohammad Bilal and coach Sohail Rashid to Russia for training for the Olympic qualifiers, the wrestlers would have bright chances to qualify for the Tokyo extravaganza.
