Wrestler Mohammad Inam wins Pakistan’s first Gold at Commonwealth Games

Wrestler Mohammad Inam Butt has once again kept Pakistan’s flag high by winning the Gold medal at the Commonwealth Games Wrestling competition on Saturday.
29-year-old Inam, also a gold medalist of Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010, completely outclassed his opponent Melvin Bibo of Nigeria in the final of 86kg weight category.
The Pakistani wrestler didn’t allow the opponent to earn a single point and won the contest 6-0 in just two rounds.

This is Pakistan’s first gold medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and overall fifth medal. Two other wrestlers Mohammad Bilal and Tayyab Raza won the Bronze while weightlifters Talha Talib and Nooh Butt also received Bronze medals in their respective categories.
