The Asian Wrestling Confederation has chosen Dr Yousef Ali al-Kazim as the head of its newly introduced committee for Planning and Development.
The committee was established following a presentation by Dr al-Kazim, who is the president of the Qatar Boxing Federation and Qatar Wrestling Federation.
His appointment to head the new committee is considered an achievement for Qatari sport, which has various regional and international achievements to its name, on both the administrative level with Qatari officials occupying some of the highest positions in world sport, and athletes winning titles and medals at various international events.
Dr al-Kazim had made the suggestion to create the committee at the meeting of the executive office of the Asian Wrestling Confederation held in Kyrgyzstan’s capital, Bishkek, on the sidelines of Senior Asian Wrestling Championship during February 27- March 4.
Daulet Turlykhanov, president of United World Wrestling-Asia, invited Dr al-Kazim to present a comprehensive work plan for the upcoming period.
The executive office of the association has chosen two members at the new committee, one from Kyrgyzstan and the other from Nepal, while leaving the choice of two other members to the head of the committee.
Dr al-Kazim pointed out that: “One member was chosen from Nepal as an emerging country in wrestling, where the various development plans could be implemented while Kyrgyzstan, as a pioneer country in the game, will help the committee implement its plans. We would put training courses and workshops to develop the game without any conflicts with the international and regional calendar.”
Dr al-Kazim tenure as head of the newly-established committee goes on until 2021.
