Five budding wrestlers of a family were working hard to bring laurels for Pakistan. Out of five, four are real brothers while fifth is their first cousin.

This quintet could be watched carrying out physical workouts and practicing wrestling techniques on daily basis at a muddy ground at a park of Lahore which has the distinction of producing a number of the country's famous wrestlers. 

These budding wrestlers are engaged in their training in the morning and evening sessions while also continuing to pay attention towards their studies in the remaining time. 

They are being trained by Farid Ali, a certified coach, and proud father of four budding wrestlers besides a nephew. 

"These boys are very enthusiastic and passionate about wrestling. The eldest one already has the distinction of winning Pakistan Under-16 Championship,” Farid Ali disclosed. 

In order to keep them physically strong and robust, these wrestlers eat the same kind of food which the local wrestlers do. They happen to take more of meat, dry and fresh fruits, nuts, milk and lassi while they avoid taking junk foods and cold drinks.
