NWF Chief Igali reflects, lists gains of Champion of Champions tourney

President of the Nigeria wrestling federation, Hon. Daniel Igali has described the just-concluded Champion of Champions wrestling tournament in Yenagoa as ‘one of the best-organized’ in the country.

Speaking to brila.net he said the championship was arguably the best they ever had although it was a small event one of the hardest in the space of three days.
The Champion of Champions wrestling competition was undoubtedly one of the best-organized competitions we’ve had,” the World and Olympic champion noted. “Though, it was small, the numbers of athletes that competed were not at the same level of athletes that we normally had competing in other tournaments, but it was probably one of the toughest tournaments,” noted Igali.

He continued: “We had it spread over three days; four weight classes per day essentially, and so the referees were not over-burdened.


“We had new technology that we used at this tournament.”


“The referees, officials, and everyone here judged this to be one of the better tournaments we’ve ever held in Nigeria.


“At a personal level, I was very satisfied with what I saw. The athletes wrestled very well. Aside from the fact that this was their first competition in 11 months, everything else appeared to be in sync.”
