Bhaijee celebrating call-up

Rokeby School’s Abdullah Bhaijee has been celebrating after being selected for GB’s junior wrestling squad.

The year 10 pupil was crowned English champion for his weight category earlier this year and attended a national talent squad trial.

And the Canning Town student impressed selectors enough to earn a spot, saying: “I am so pleased to have the opportunity to represent Team GB and look forward to really testing myself.

“I would like to thank my club, Legion Wrestling, and coach Amir Eslami for teaching me the skills to enable me to compete at this level.”
