Inam outclassed his opponent Melvin Bibo of Nigeria in the 86kg freestyle wrestling category to win the final. He won the match 6-0 without allowing his opponent to even earn a single point.
This is not the first time he won the gold medal–Inam also bagged a gold medal at the Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010. After winning the match, he did a lap of honour with the Pakistan flag draped around him.
This raises Pakistan’s tally to five medals in this edition of the Commonwealth Games.
