Zomba to stage street wrestling


Wrestling Federation of Malawi will stage the second edition of street wrestling at Chinamwali Trading Centre in Zomba on April 2.

The federation’s Eastern Region Chapter Chairperson, Bright Limani, said they wanted to inject life into the sport, which they launched in 2015.

“The games have been organised to help us identify talent and sharpen skills of budding and experienced wrestlers,” said Limani, who is also the event’s chairperson.


During the first edition, 13 wrestlers were certified fit to take part in the competition while seven failed to meet the standards.

Limani said they will hold different activities to promote the sport to athletes and corporate world.

“We would like to register potential athletes to take up the sport. We feel that if we engage in street wrestling, we will coax others to join the sport and the corporate world may start pouring in their support,” he said.
