New Delhi: Where on one hand the Adhoc Committee of the Indian Olympic Association had made up its mind to field only one team in the Asian Games and World Championships to be held in September 2023 this year. At the same time, only one trial was to be held for both tournaments next month.
Along with this, the IOA executive also wants to put the wrestlers included in these trials tops in the trial. In such a situation, the way will be cleared for the trial of Bajrang, Vinesh, and Sakshi Malik sitting on dharna. But on this matter in Sonipat, wrestler Sakshee Malik made it clear that we will play Asian Games only when this whole issue is resolved. You cannot understand what we are going through mentally every day.
Let us inform you that the World Championship is to be held in Belgrade (Serbia) from September 16 to 24, while the Asian Games are to be held from September 23 to October 8. And wrestling will be held in the Asian Games from October 4 to 7. Due to the close proximity of both dates, the wrestling association decided to field both teams. Whereas the Adhoc committee does not want to get into controversies. But now it has become clear from Sakshi Malik’s side that the wrestler sitting on strike is not ready for this.
Let us inform you that, for more than a month, wrestlers have opened a front against President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. Along with this, the players are adamant about demanding his arrest. He has been accused of sexual exploitation and even an FIR has been registered.
