Team Mohamed’s in Amsterdam’s corner on Pan Am/Olympic Games journey
Businessman Azruddin Mohamed has thrown his support behind Guyanese boxer Desmond Amsterdam, who is on a mission to qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
The boxer is one step closer to that goal of competing at the prestigious global Games, as he prepares to attend the Pan Am Games later this year in Chile.
“It is no doubt that the businessman continues to throw his support behind young Guyanese sportsmen and women with the main aim of them realising their dreams,” Team Mohamed’s posted on its social media account.
Amsterdam of the Guyana Defence Force will represent Guyana in the Light Heavyweight category at the Pan Am Games from October 20 to November 5, and his passage to the Olympics could be sealed with a gold or silver medal performance in Chile.
Mohamed’s sponsorship will cover expenses related to training, supplements and other aspects of the boxer’s preparation.
Amsterdam, who hails from Stanleytown, Berbice, last represented Guyana on the Patrick Forde Boxing Card and won by knocking out his opponent.
“With several wins under his belt, he remains optimistic that he will make the team to the Olympics and thanked the businessman for his generous support. On the other hand, Mr. Mohamed wished the boxer best of luck at the Pan Am Games while adding that he is looking forward to receive the news of him making it to Paris 2024,” Team Mohamed’s concluded.
