The Wrestling Federation of India has barred 10 girls wrestlers from competiting within the trials for the upcoming Asian Championship, on the grounds of indiscipline. The wrestlers in query didn’t report for the nationwide camp in Lucknow, or left in two days making excuses, as per a report.
Whereas the championships is scheduled to happen in Mongolia from April 19-24, the trials for the ladies wrestlers are imagined to happen on Friday on the SAI Centre in Lucknow. The wrestlers who’ve been barred from the trials are — Honey Kumari (50kg), Ankush (53kg), Anju (55kg), Raman (55kg), Geeta (59kg), Bhateri (65kg), Priyanka (65kg), Naina (68kg) and Pooja (76kg).
Bhateri, Anju and Honey reached out to the federation, to have the ability to participate within the trails, however their request was turned down. Which means that, there is not sufficient competitors left for Sakshi Malik within the 65kg class, and it will likely be simpler for her to sail by way of.
“We’ll ask for a proof from the wrestlers why are they not taking nationwide camp severely. Lacking out on an opportunity to compete in a event like Asian Championship will definitely educate them a lesson,” WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh instructed PTI on the sidelines of the lads’s trials. “Our second line is fairly robust, so we will take these robust steps to make sure self-discipline on the nationwide camp. We do not wish to damage possibilities of good wrestlers however they should perceive that they cannot take issues without any consideration,” he added.
Furthermore, teh federation believes that the non-public coaches of those wrestlers are to be blamed for the mess. “They practice them and that is good however as soon as camp begins, wrestlers mustn’t miss that except the federation has permitted them for a sound cause. The coaches inform wrestlers that they’ll practice them higher at their private centres and on the camp they threat exposing their video games.
“Additionally, perhaps they wish to keep away from scrutiny on the camp. The doping officers can come anytime there however at private centres (akhaadas), who’s going to examine if the wrestlers are taking a clear weight-reduction plan,” stated the WFI chief.
The WFI has a cause to be nervous as properly. Since 2016, 4 Indian wrestlers have been caught for doping. “We have now paid 80,000 Swiss Francs (near 65 lakh) as penalty in previous few years for no fault of ours. So we wish our wrestlers to coach at camp in order that the wrestlers don’t even consider taking any banned substance,” stated Singh.
