Babita's Rio dream alive? Phogat sisters among Indian wrestlers let off by WFI disciplinary committee
The disciplinary committee of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has recommended pardon for all the wrestlers including Babita Phogat, who forfeited their bouts during the recent Olympic qualifying events, citing that they are all first-time offenders.
Both Sushil Kumar and Narsingh Yadav are vying for the lone Indian spot at the Olympics, in a competition that might just end up on the wrestling mat with Sushil asking for a trial.
The WFI on Friday put the onus of holding a selection trial to choose between Sushil Kumar and Narsingh Pancham Yadav for this year's Olympic Games on the government, saying the WFI alone cannot decide on the "sensitive matter".
The Wrestling Federation of India is likely to pardon temporarily suspended Babita Kumari for forfeiting her bout in a recent qualifying event and allow her to compete at the Rio Games, as she secured an Olympic berth after her rival failed a dope test.
