Gambia: Wrestling Could Be a Source of Income for Youths

One of the Upper River Region's strongest wrestlers, Essa Secka, has said wrestling can be a source of income for young people of the country if they utilise the opportunity accorded to them by the government of The Gambia.

The renowned wrestler who has been engaged in the sport for close to two decades was speaking to this reporter at the ongoing 10th Edition of the National Youth Conference and Festival (NAYCONF) in Bansang in the Central River Region (CRR).

"I have been competing for many years at different places within the country and outside but I have seen the benefits that I have gained from it," he said. He also urged his fellow youths to venture into the sector in order to promote the country's intellectual legacy.
