Take Devon to World Champs Campaign

Devon Cook will be competing at the World Kurash Senior Championships in Turkmenistan in Central Asia. The World Championships will take place from the 23rd to the 28th of November 2023.
Dev started Judo in early 2004 and wants to add another sport achievement to his name by practicing Kurash. 

What is Kurash? 
Kurash is a form of upright jacket wrestling native to Uzbekistan, practiced since ancient times.
It is played by two athletes, one wearing a green jacket and the other a blue jacket.
The objective is to try to throw one another to the ground. If thrown to the back, victory is declared. If thrown onto the side, points are awarded.
If thrown to the belly or weakly onto the side, a lower score is given. The one with the most points wins.
Kurash was incorporated into the Asian Indoor Games in 2007.

As everyone knows, it costs a leg and a arm to travel. with your help another dream of Devon can come true.
