Wrestling coach Yashvir Singh has backed his wards � Beijing bronze medallist Sushil Kumar and fellow grappler Yogeshwar Dutt � to make their experience count at the London Games

“They have the experience of two Olympics behind them, besides nine World Championships and they are fully aware of what would be at stake in London. Both of them are in great shape right now and I am hopeful that they will be able to extract the desired result,” Yashvir told PTI yesterday on returning home from a training camp with the two in Colorado Springs, USA.

“The training camp in the US was very effective. It has helped the players get a feel of things to come and given them confidence that they can finish at the top in London,” he added. Sushil meanwhile, has called for support from fans and divine intervention to strike gold.
