Bajrang Punia pulls out

Olympic bronze medallist Bajrang Punia will not compete in the upcoming wrestling World Championships after being advised a six-week rehabilitation to treat the ligament tear he suffered in his right knee in the run-up to the Tokyo Games.

Bajrang will not be able to begin his mat training until the rehabilitation programme is complete.

“It’s a ligament tear, and I have been asked to follow a rehabilitation programme for six weeks by Dr Dinshaw. I won’t be able to compete at the World Championship,” Bajrang told PTI.

“The Worlds was the only major championship in the calendar for this year. I don’t see myself competing in any other tournament this season,” he added.

“Since it was my first Olympics and I had a dream to win an Olympic medal, I competed through pain in Tokyo. I had to do it.” Bajrang said.

“I am doing it [rehabilitation] myself in Sonepat. Dr. Dinshaw has advised a few exercises that I am doing every day now in the gym. The mat-training time will also go into the rehab,” he said.
