The controversy surrounding Indian wrestlers Sushil Kumar and Narsingh Yadav is getting bigger with no proper solution on horizon without swashing one’s Olympic dream.

Sushil, who already has two Olympic-medals under his belt, said his glorious past should be set aside and only he be given a chance to prove himself. He added that if “there are two good contenders, there must be a fair trial and a procedure that should be followed.”
Though both are right with their demands, the situation has put the sports ministry in a soup.
The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), in turn, seems to be in two minds.
The current rules state that the one who wins the quota represents the country at Olympics.
“On one hand, we have the future of India’s most decorated wrestler and on the other, we have our traditions and rules. While rules say the quota belongs to the country, our tradition and court’s order has been to send the wrestler who has won the quota. I don’t know what to do or what to say.”
