WQ Inc would like to congratulate 61kg Freestyle Wrestler Tom Cicchini on his commendation from QUT.
In this calendar year, Tom has competed in the Australian National Championship, Oceania Championship in Hamilton NZ and was part of the Australian squad for the Commonwealth Junior Championship in Calgary Canada. All while studying full time, working and donating time to assist with the school-aged Wrestling classes at Lang Park PCYC.
Wrestling Queensland would like to thank the organisers and presenters for the United World Wrestling Coaching Course held at the Australian Institute of Sport. It’s great to see people for all states coming together for the growth of Australian grassroots Wrestling.
We were very privileged to have two elite Wrestlers and Coaches presenting at the course, Majid Torkan (1990 52kg Freestyle World Champion) and Hassan Rangraz (2001 54kg Greco-Roman World Champion)
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.
