Wrestler Sushil Kumar asked the Delhi high court on Monday to hold a trial between him and Narsingh Yadav to decide India’s representative in the 74kg freestyle category for the Rio Olympics.
Sushil, India’s only double Olympic medallist, has filed a writ petition in the Delhi High Court on Monday and the matter is listed for tomorrow. The petition was filed on his behalf by lawyer Kaushik Moitra.
Sushil has been demanding for the trials to be held in the 74 kg weight category in which Narsingh Pancham Yadav has won the quota for the country after he won the bronze medal at the 2015 World Championships that was held in Las Vegas, USA.
The federation will take a call on Tuesday, when WFI’s selection committee will meet to decide on Sushil’s request.
