The event, which also attracted a group of young wrestlers from Canada, was hosted by Peterborough’s Futuwwa Wrestling Club and they certainly made their mark on the competition with eight podium finishes.

Two of them - Noorie Khan and Zain Zahid - struck gold while Muhammad Hussain and Mohammed Hasnaat won silvers and Amina Gul, Isa Alam Khan, Jimmy Borrowski and Abdur Rahman Sajid all claimed a bronze medal.

Musa Alam and Abdur Rahman Jarral from Futuwwa just missed out on the podium, both finishing fourth in their categories.
