Narsingh Yadav to participate in Rio Olympics following clean chit from UWW

New Delhi: Today, the United World Wrestling also gave a clean chit to the Indian wrestler Narsingh Yadav thus increasing chances of his participation in the Rio Games. This piece of news might definitely give some relief to the wrestler.

A confirmation on the same came from the president of Wrestling Federation of India, Bhushan Charan Singh. Bhushan said that they had resend Narsingh’s name to the UWW son after the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) cleared the wrestler of doping charges.

Also, the WFI had forwarded the name of Praveen Rana so that India held its quota in the 74kg freestyle category. However after Narsingh got a clean chit from the National Anti-Doping Agency, Bhushan called up UWW and requested them to review Singh’s entry.

He said, “On June 25, we had written to the international body (UWW) and had conveyed to them if the Narsingh is exonerated, she should be allowed to compete at the Olympics.”

In 2014, Narsingh won an Olympic quota with a bronze medal finish in last year’s World Championships. He was suspended after he tested positive of a banned substance hence reducing his chances of participating in Rio Olympics.

As of now, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said that it would review the clean chit given to Narsingh by NADA.
