We were very happy to present on behalf of Queensland PCYC a lifetime membership to our State Coach Yuri Markov at the Lang Park Club last Friday.
Since emigrating in 1997, Yuri with over 50 years in the sport of Wrestling has been kind enough to generously dedicate his time to growing the sport and passing on his knowledge to the Wrestling community in Queensland.
We cannot thank Yuri enough for his efforts and we are very privileged to have someone with world class Wrestling credentials right here in Brisbane.
Congratulations from Wrestling Queensland.
