Turkey to sponsor wrestling in Africa

Turkey, a leading country in the world in wrestling, will sponsor wrestling in the African continent.

The Turkish Wrestling Federation, with the assistance of the Federation of International Wrestling Associations (FILA), firstly helped the establishment of an olympic wrestling federation in Sudan.

After extensive talks of four months, Deputy Director General of the Turkish Directorate General of Youth and Sports Mehmet Kocatepe, Chair of the Personnel Training Department Ahmet Ak and Deputy President of the Turkish Wrestling Federation Ercan Yildiz arrived in Sudan's capital of Khartoum and signed a protocol with the Sudanese Olympic Committee.

According to the protocol, the Turkish Wrestling Federation will assign one coach for freestyle wrestling and one coach for Greco-Roman wrestling in Sudan.

The coaches will receive their salaries from the Turkish Directorate General of Youth and Sports and train Sudanese wrestlers for international competition.

Mehmet Kocatepe said that, aside from Sudan, Turkey's sponsorship of African wrestling will continue in 20 African countries, including Tunisia, Algeria, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Yemen.
