Syerus Eslami will go to Birmingham to compete in his second Commonwealth Games having won bronze in the men’s freestyle 86kg wrestling in Gold Coast in 2018.
From a rich wrestling family, Eslami’s grandfather was an Olympian while his uncle also competed for Great Britain, with his dad a British schools champion.
To motivate himself, Eslami has a notebook in which he writes down every single day that he will be the best in the world and become Olympic champion.
Away from wrestling, Eslami works as a thermal insulation engineer and is doing an apprenticeship to become fully qualified.
