On Friday, Pakistan's star wrestlers - Zaman Anwar, Inam Butt and Inayatullah - brought laurels to the country.
Inayatullah won a bronze medal after outclassing his Scottish rival, Ross Connelly, in the Men's Free Style 65 kg Wrestling event. He won the contest on the basis of technical superiority after three minutes and 59 seconds.
