Wrestling official Claudius Mensah is in Senegal taking part in a referee course for wrestlers which started last Monday and is expected to run till next Tuesday.
The President of the Wrestling association Prince Suallay said that they have decided to send Claudius Mensah to attend the referee course because after the course in Niger he said that he spoke to the organizers telling them that they do not have a qualified referee for Wrestling in the country.
It was against this background that they granted him the request for Sierra Leone to send one person who will be trained as a professional Wrestling referee which is a big boost for the association.
He mentioned that after Mensah returns home he will try to organize a seminar where he can also train other people to become referees.
He also disclosed that they were unable to organize international competitions because there were no professional wrestling referees in the country to officiate such competition but with such development they are hoping to host such competition in the future.
