Indian Wrestling Team Approved


The Indian government has approved the participation of a 55-member wrestling team in the 1st Ranking Series Zagreb Open Grand Prix in Croatia from February 1-5.

The selection was made by the Wrestling Federation of India’s oversight committee and includes 12 women wrestlers, 11 Greco-Roman wrestlers and 13 male freestyle wrestlers. However, the government is reportedly unhappy with the wrestlers’ behavior and will not reconstitute the oversight committee formed to investigate sexual harassment charges against the president of the Wrestling Federation of India. A new committee, headed by boxer M C Mary Kom, has been formed to investigate the charges and manage the day-to-day affairs of the sports body.
