Pakistani wrestler Inam Butt wins silver in World Series

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Inam Butt has won a silver medal in Beach Wrestling World Series in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil after going down 2-0 in the final against Dato Marsagishvili of Georgia.
Inam, who was undefeated on his way to the final, lost the bout 2-0 by VPO. He had earlier defeated Grigorios Kriaridis in the semifinal.
With the silver medal in Brazil, Inam has also qualified for World Beach Games, scheduled to be played in October in San Diego, USA.
Following his final bout, Inam said he was deprived of a certain gold medal due to a wrong decision by the referee which went against him.
“In final I was competing against Olympic Bronze medalist player and I believe that I fought well but unfortunately a bad decision was made against me which cost me the important point,” he said.
