WFI invites Vinesh & Bajrang to participate in selection trials for Paris 2024 qualifiers

WFI invites Vinesh & Bajrang to participate in selection trials for Paris 2024 qualifiers

Earlier this month, Vinesh Phogat had won the National Trials in 55 kg event, held by the ad-hoc committee, in Jaipur.

The WFI, in a surprise move, invited the likes of Vinesh Phogat, Bajrang Punia and retired Sakshi Malik for the selection trials of the Senior Asian Wrestling Championship and Asian Olympic Games Qualifiers on Monday. The trials for both the events will take place at the KD Jadhav Stadium in New Delhi, starting March 10.

“I would like to inform all affiliated units of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) that the selection trials to select the teams for participation in the following events are being conducted on 10th and 11th March 2024 at K.D. Jadhav Wrestling Indoor Stadium, IGI Sports Complex, New Delhi,” the WFI president Sanjay Singh said in a statement.

“All state units are requested to intimate the wrestlers as per the list attached to participate in the said trials.” It was only recently that the UWW lifted the ban on WFI, on February 13. But weirdly still, the federation remains suspended by the sports ministry.
