Algerian wrestling trio qualify for Rio 2016

Algeria have added three new competitors to their qualifying party at the Olympics this summer, thanks to their performances at the Las Vegas World Championship and the African-Oceanic tournament.

Greco-Roman wrestlers Tarek Benaissa, Adem Boudjemline and Hamza Haloui will represent the North Africans this summer in Brazil and will look to bring home multiple medals.

Benaissa will compete in the 66kg category, whilst Boudjemline and Haloui will be representing Algeria in the 85kg and 98kg sections. We wish them the best of luck in Rio!
