South African-born Charles has been part of the wrestling family for 46 years, 38 of which as a referee. He is also an educator and an assistant instructor.
He was South Africa’s Chairperson for the National Referee Council.
He also proudly served at the Tournaments the few times he represented the UWW.
His most outstanding achievement – in his opinion – was his participation in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, but the Commonwealth Games and Senior World Championships were remarkable as well.
