The Banjul and Kanifing Municipal Wrestling Committees under the auspices of The Gambia Wrestling Association on Sunday 28 November 2021, organised a day-long training for managers and coaches from clubs within the two regions.

The training that brought together 30 participants was organised among other things to "enhance the capacity of key stakeholders in the two regions."

Abdoulie Gillen, first vice president of The Gambia Wrestling Association (GWA) said: "I want to thank Banjul and KM Wrestling committees for such an amazing initiative. As an association, we are very proud that our regional committees collaborate to organise this timely capacity building programme for their stakeholders. This will surely go a long way in improving the capacity of our managers and coaches in these regions."

Alagie Basiru Mbaye, chairman, KM Wrestling Committee, said the training is organised amongst other things to train club managers and coaches within Banjul and KM regions for better understanding of the Rules and Regulations of GWA.

Aruna Jah, chairman Banjul Wrestling Committee said the training was the first of many future collaborations between the two regional committees.

Participants were taken through various presentations by Ebrima Suwareh, secretary general and Chebo Jeng, head of the GWA organising committee.

Delivering the closing remark, Alhagie Abdoulie Bojang, desk officer for Wrestling at the National Sports Council, expressed delight at the initiative and described it as a clear manifestation that Gambian wrestling is growing.

 "I am delighted with what I have witnessed here and I must say that wrestling is on the right path. We must all take what we learned here back to our clubs," he asserted.

Omar Bajang and Biram Gaye delivered the vote of thanks on behalf of participants. Both men thanked the Banjul and KM wrestling committees for the initiative and promised to make good use of the knowledge gained.
