Wrestling Federation of India cancels national camp

Aug 06, 2020 12:10 IST

The Wrestling Federation of India has decided to further postpone the women's national camp, which was scheduled to begin from the 2nd week of August, due to fear of the coronavirus. The building next to the Sports Authority of India centre in Lucknow was turned into a Covid care facility by the Utter Pradesh government and the wrestlers feared contracting the virus as many patients have been quarantined in that building. Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik and Pooja Dhanda were among the women wrestlers who had to start training in the Lucknow facility. The men's national camp, which was to be held simultaneously in Sonepat, has also been postponed.
