Sakshi Malik, In Dilemma About Participating In The National Camp

Sakshi Malik, in dilemma about participating in the national camp, said- consent of other women players required. Sakshi Malik said what is the point of joining the camp if there is no competition. Olympic bronze medalist female wrestler Sakshi Malik made it clear that she would not commit to the national camp starting from September 1 until other women wrestlers also confirmed to participate.

Sakshi said, ‘What does it mean to join the camp if there is no competition. I came to know that many wrestlers have refused to join the camp, so what will I do there and train with whom? There is still time for the national camp to start, so I will wait and see who comes and who does not. A senior official of the Indian Wrestling Federation said that no one would be allowed to leave the camp without any concrete reason. Vinesh Phogat, who had earlier obtained a ticket to Tokyo Olympics, refused to participate in the camp starting in Lucknow.

Let us tell you that in view of the outbreak of Corona virus epidemic, this attitude of players is coming out. At the same time, Sakshi Malik’s name was selected for the Arjuna Award for the National Sports Award this time. The selection committee nominated him for the Arjuna Award, which was to be stamped by the Sports Ministry, but the Sports Ministry has made it clear that Sakshi has already been conferred with the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, the best sports award.

Arjuna Award will not be given. Meerabai Chanu’s name along with Sakshi was also nominated for this award, but the same argument was made about her. This time the names of a total of 29 players were put forward for the Arjuna Award, but the names of two players were dropped. Now 27 players will be given this award.
