The reason behind that thought was Sushil’s absence in the game for a long time after he failed to secure a berth in the Indian contingent for the Rio Olympics 2016.
He said, “I could not take part in World Championship last year. And that was the major blunder I had made. So this time, I am very careful.” Sushil informed, “I have been training six hours a day now. The time is going to increase gradually. And to keep myself fit I am also doing some running as well as yoga. I know I am 33 years old. But age is just a number.” Still, the wrestler might have one major difficulty before participating in any international competition as he has not participated in competitive wrestling tournament for more than six months.
And the back-to-back bronze and silver medal winner in Bejing and in London Olympics is also aware of the fact. That might be the reason Sushil added, “I need some exposure tournaments to for an assessment of my fitness and playing standard. I will do that by going to Georgia again to take part in a couple of tournaments after March next year.”
