Olympic trials to go ahead despite Sushil's postponement request

Jan 02, 2020 18:25 IST

The Wrestling Federation of India has decided to go ahead with the selection trials in the men’s freestyle 74kg category despite a postponement request from injured Sushil Kumar. 2-time Olympic medallist Sushil had earlier withdrawn from Friday's trials for next month’s Asian Championships and the continental Olympic qualifying event as he is yet to recover from a shoulder injury. However, Sushil may get a chance to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics in March. According to Assistant secretary Vinod Tomar, if the Wrestling Federation of India feels that they do not have a strong candidate going for the Asian Qualifier in March, the federation may ask Sushil to appear in a trial.
