“When the trials took place in July 2015 before the World Championships and I could not take part due to an injury, WFI had said, at that time, that even if Narsingh Yadav books a quota in 74kg, there would be a trial before the Olympics as there is Sushil Kumar also in this category.”

The 32-year-old wrestler reiterated he just wants WFI hold a trial only. “I am not even saying that you send me because of my previous records at the Olympics, all I am asking is to conduct a trial. I just want them to check my performance.

“If you don’t even check how am I performing right now, then how would you know who between me and Narsingh is better.”
