Deepak Poonia, who was injured before the Olympics, pulled out of the Poland Open, now only three Indians in the tournament


New Delhi
Indian wrestler Deepak Poonia, who has qualified for the Olympics, on Tuesday withdrew from the Poland Open to avoid aggravating a left arm injury. This is the last ranking series event before the Tokyo Games and Poonia was supposed to challenge in the 86kg category but pulled out of the quarterfinal match against Zahid Valencia of America.

A source in the Indian team said, “He did not want his injury to escalate and had informed the federation that he would take a decision on competing only after reaching there.” After assessing his

hand this morning, he decided not to play.

This has been confirmed by the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI). WFI assistant secretary Vinod Tomar said, “Yes, we had given him the option. We don’t want to put pressure on the wrestlers, the Olympics are around the corner, so there is no point in taking risks. Poonia will be with the team till July 5 for the training camp. The camp is organized by the Federation of Poland.

WFI is also working with Turkey, Romania and Russia to organize training camps for Indian Olympic qualifying wrestlers. With the withdrawal of Poonia, there are now only three Indian wrestlers left in the competition.

Ravi Dahiya, who has qualified in 57kg at the Olympic Games, will challenge in the 61kg category at the Poland Open. Vinesh Phogat (53kg) and Anshu Malik (57kg) will challenge in the women’s event on Friday.
