Sushil has won medals in Olympics, World C'ships, Commonwealth Games and Asian Championships, but is still without a podium finish at the Asian Games.

He missed the last Asiad in 2010 in Guangzhou due to injury. "I have won medals in all the major events, be it the Olympics, World Championships and Commonwealth Games. Only an Asian Games medal is left for me.

So I want to win a medal in Incheon. I hope I can win a gold there," he said on the sidelines of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Roadshow here.

India finish sixth
Meanwhile, World Championships silver medallist Amit Kumar won four of his five bouts as India finished sixth in the FILA Men's Freestyle Wrestling World Cup here. India lost to Mongolia 3-5 in the 5th-6th position match after finishing third in their group.
