Senegalese Wrestling: Several Fans Wounded as Gouye Gui Ends 3-year Winless Run

Several supporters were left wounded while others fainted at the stadium in yesterday evening’s fight featuring Gouye Gui versus Siteu.

Unlike last July’s tragic stadium stampede causing the cancellation of the Modou Lo-Lac 2 combat, the stands didn’t collapse but a number of fans sustained injuries as wrestler Gouye-Gui made his way into the fight venue.

The incident happened following a push and pull as police fired tear gas to quell down mounting trouble.

In a deserved return to victory following a 36-month wait in the Senegalese arena, Gouye Gui emerged supreme by beating Siteu.

In a less than five-minute bout, Gouye gripped his opponent in his trademark pattern fight before balancing his weight on his adversary as the two went sideways into the sands. But Siteu first touched the ground causing referees to declared Gouye -a Guediawaye-born – the winner.

Yesterday’s duel brought a tail end to Gouye’s winless run after enduring defeat to Boy Niang May last year.

A delighted Gouye Gui wept in joy as he revealed he spent million CFAs in his weight-lifting preparations in New York.

Gouye Gui, literally meaning the Big Tree in Senegalese local dialect, Wolof, admitted to using performance-enhancing tablets and blamed that for his career delay

In desperate efforts to reclaim his former toned shape, Gouye opted to go to the U.S ahead of the fight.

But I needed to prove a thing or two so I went to New York where I lifted incredible weights until I got hospitalized more than once.[/perfectpullquote]

“However, it’s all worth it giving I won. I can’t say much about Siteu because he’s someone I like a lot and he respects me greatly. We were merely carrying out contractual obligations that bonded us to this fight,” Gouye-Gui said in post-match remarks.
