Asad and Sharif bring honour to Pakistan with Bronze and Gold Medals at the Commonwealth Games


BIRMINGHAM: 7 August 2022: Pakistan’s wrestlers continued picking up medals at the Commonwealth Games but a gold proved elusive yet again on Saturday.
Mohammad Sharif Tahir, in his maiden international event, went closest at the Coventry Arena. But just like compatriot Inam Butt on Friday, he couldn’t get a final victory against an opponent from arch-rivals India.Sharif lost 9-0 to Naveen Kumar in the 74kg final, his defeat coming moments after his team-mate Ali Asad had picked up bronze by swatting New Zealand’s Suraj Singh 11-0 in the 57kg competition.Ali had earlier lost to cross-border rival Ravi Kumar and India domination of Pakistan in the ring was extended later in the evening when Tayyab Raza lost his 97kg bronze medal match 2-10 to Deepak Nehra.
