SUSPENDED JINNEH MORRY FROWNS OVER GWA’S VERDICT

By Sulayman Bah

Banned over the eye injury of his opponent, Jinneh Morry has reacted Jinneh Morryslamming the Gambia Wrestling Association’s (GWA) verdict.

GWA over the weekend made public its findings into the February bout in which Jinneh Morry was controversially declared winner uncontested after Flex, his opponent, was unable to fight due to a sustained eye injury.

The injury is blamed on an escort of Jinneh who’s said to have thrown ‘stuff’ in Flex eyes just before start of the duel, according to the traditional sport overseeing entity.

Thus, wrestling body’s disciplinary taskforce in its judgment banned Jinneh Morry, Serrekunda Mboolo’s flag-bearer, for not being exactly cooperative at the GWA’s request to make the alleged perpetrator -believe to be a member of the club –available for grilling.

In the verdict, a copy of which Foroyaa Sport obtained, the GWA backed its ruling on article 62 of its constitution slapping a two-month suspension –from March 23rd –May 22nd – and D7, 500 fine on the aforesaid wrestler.

However, Jinneh Morry –once considered Gambia’s face of wrestling –has finally opened over the matter calling the judgment confusing.

Protesting his innocence he told Foroyaa Sport yesterday afternoon: “the ban is unjustifiable. The doctor gave the all-clear that he (Flex the opponent) can wrestle. They (the GWA) said they suspect one of my escorts as the culprit. That’s not nice. I am no aware of it and I have done anything wrong to warrant a suspension. That’s clear to every body.”

This’s not the first time a Serrekunda Mbolloh wrestler is slammed a ban with Tass-sa-yaram also suspended by the GWA prior to traveling last year.
