Wrestling News: Trials for Tokyo Olympic Qualifiers likely to be held in March

Wrestling News – Trials for Tokyo Olympic Qualifiers: The Wrestling Federation of India is planning to organise the trials for the Olympic Qualifiers in March said WFI assistant secretary Vinod Tomar. “We have not yet decided the dates for the qualifiers but in all likeability the trials will be held in March. It will give us time to prepare the selected wrestlers for the Qualifiers in April,” he said.

So far, four Indian wrestlers have qualified for the Tokyo Olympics — Ravi Dahiya (men’s 57kg freestyle), Bajrang Punia (men’s 65kg freestyle), Deepak Punia (men’s 74kg freestyle) and Vinesh Phogat (women’s 53kg freestyle). They all confirmed their berths from the 2019 World Championships. There are still another 14 weight categories in which an Indian wrestler can qualify for the Olympics.
