Press release: Midwest Regional Wrestling Initiative Social Night


OMAHA- We are informing all South Sudan communities, families, American friends, and other groups in the United States that the Midwest Regional communities will host Wrestling Initiative Social Night activities in Omaha, Nebraska on Saturday, November 24th, 2012. The social night activities will include forming a wrestling team, enjoying customized traditional dances, and an all night party. It is our pleasure to inform the South Sudan Midwest communities to come together and share the goals of this event.midwest team

The purpose of this occasion is to prepare and publicly inform all the South Sudanese Midwest Regional Communities that there will be an interregional wrestling competition between the East-coast and Midwest on Saturday, May 25th, 2013, the weekend of the Memorial Day Holiday. The Midwest organizing committee wants to ensure that everyone is informed for the upcoming Interregional Wrestling contest. We are passionately extending our invitation and welcome all the South Sudanese people, friends, families and many others to join and participate in this event.

We take pride to acknowledge and appreciate Manyang Mabior Deng and Achiek Maluk Deng for representing the Midwest region and a job well done. People learned about the wrestling months ago through the interview as well as breaking news that was published on September 29th, 2012 by the New Sudan Vision that the Midwest team defeated the East-coast team. This was a challenge to the East-coast team. The whole region of the East-coast could not believe that they would lose, but of course our team was well prepared to meet the challenge.

We are certain the Midwest region will win again. We will not accept defeat even though the East coast is preparing to come and compete against our team. We will be ready and are strongly equipped to win the match once again. We do not expect East-coast to win the wrestling contest over Midwest because the power of their team will not defeat our team.

Thanks in advance to everyone who will come to this event. We will work together and provide good information to make your experience during this social night the best it can be. Let’s stay connected for the wellbeing of the South Sudan Midwest Regional Communities. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions.
