Five Namibian wrestlers brought home four bronze and one silver medal from the recently ended African Wrestling Championships that took place in Nigeria last week.

The wrestlers who are from the After School Centre Wrestling Club (ASCWC) did well despite training with minimal resources, Head of ASCWC Maggy Katima told The Villager Sports.

“Our team showed that they would not give-up regardless of their little experience and resources. I believe that once we have resources at our disposal we will win more gold medals. Some of the countries the team competed against are well established in the sport code of wrestling and they have all the resources but they did not scare our wrestlers in anyway. Our team was so excited and did their best, “she said.
