He said he was elated with the level of competition he witnessed in the two day event, expressing optimism that Nigerian wrestlers would distinguish themselves at the championship.
The commissioner explained that with the achievement recorded in wrestling in the last ten years, he is targeting a medal sweep in Tunisia, stating that no sports have done better than wrestling in Nigeria.
He noted that records in the wrestling federation speak volume for the federation and they are leaving nothing to chance to produce a five -star performance in Tunis, Tunisia.

Reflecting on the talents discovered during the trial, Dr Igali stressed that the future of wrestling is bright in Nigeria describing the event as laudable.
