Full of admiration for the classy attire of the Nigeria wrestling team, Commonwealth wrestling Association Chairman, Josip Mrkoci took to his Facebook page and Instagram to commend the wrestlers and welcome them to Glasgow for the games.
The Director of the team, damian Ohaike said:
“You can see the attire the athletes are putting on, hardly can one recognize that they are wrestlers.
“The colour of their suits is peculiar to wrestling and all these are courtesy of the president, Daniel Igali. He knew what he passed through and now he is trying to make the wrestlers happy.”
