Chief Executive, Craig Anthony, said
“The Commonwealth Games forms an incredibly important part of our performance pathway, providing a high-level multi-sport Games opportunity for our wrestlers. For many the Commonwealth Games is the pinnacle of their wrestling career, and this news is incredibly disappointing. Across the whole Commonwealth, many wrestlers, their coaches and their families will, inevitably, feel let down that they will be denied the opportunity to compete in Victoria.”
“It is very disappointing that wrestling has not been included in the programme for the Victoria Games at this stage. We believe we made a strong and exciting proposal that built on the sell-out event at Birmingham. Wrestling has always been in the Games, and the sport has deep roots in the Commonwealth. We believe it’s important that the Games includes sports that have broad appeal across the whole Commonwealth. We hope that the opportunity remains for our sport to be included.”
Secretary for Welsh Wrestling Association and Commonwealth Committee, Ian Wiggett
