Indian judges cheated, pushed us away from medals: claim Pakistani bodybuilder

Meanwhile, coach Waleed said the tournament’s official told them that Indian judges were cheating against Pakistan. “Officials told us that Indian judges were cheating. Otherwise, Ramiz Ibrahim and Irfan could have won medals for Pakistan,” he shared.
