Dainik Bhaskar Apr 06, 2020, 09:07 PM IST Wrestler Sushil Kumar made it clear that he is not going to retire yet. He said in an interview to the news agency that people have a habit of writing about the end of my game. But it doesn't matter to me. Sushil said that I am not going anywhere now. 1 year Olympic postponement means I have got a good chance to qualify for these games for the fourth time. More time means better preparation.
Sushil said – Wrestling is such a game that if you stay away from injury, and set a goal, then you can achieve it. I now practice twice daily. I am not landing on mats, but trying my best to keep myself fit. If God wants, I will definitely qualify for the Olympics. This wrestler further said that in 2011 also people were talking about me. I know how to handle it. This is my daily job. Even 9 years ago, critics were apprehensive that Sushil would not repeat Beijing's performance. However, she stopped speaking by winning silver at the 2012 London Olympics.
Narasimha Yadav can challenge again
Sushil's old counterpart Narasimha Yadav has also joined the Olympic race due to postponement of Olympic 1 year. The 4-year ban on him is ending in July this year. After that they can also claim for Olympic qualification. Wrestling Federation of India has already said that they will give Narasimha a chance to return. The Federation had preferred Narsingh over Sushil in the 2016 Rio Games. However, he later failed in the dope test. Sushil's demand for trial was then turned down by the Federation as well as the Delhi High Court and he was accused of even conspiring against Narasimha.
Congratulations to Narasimha for starting his career again: Sushil
This time, on the question related to competing with Narasimha, he said that when the time comes, we will see it. At the moment, I congratulate him for starting his career again. Sushil offers a claim in the 74 kg category. No Indian wrestler has yet achieved the Olympic quota. Narasimha will also enter the same weight category.
