Wrestling News : Divya Kakran, Pooja Dhanda’s name not there in national camp

Around 40 women wrestlers have been named for the national camp scheduled to commence at SAI centre in Lucknow. All the medallists of the recently concluded national championship have been called up, but renowned wrestlers like Divya Kakran (68kg) and Pooja Dhanda (57kg) failed to make the list. While the Asian champion Kakran was stunned in the opening round of the nationals, Dhanda preferred to skip the meet to prepare for selection trials scheduled in March for the Olympic qualifiers. Rio Olympic bronze medallist Sakshi Malik, who lost 62kg final to Sonam Malik to finish with a silver medal, though will attend the camp. With the federation preferring medallists, the camp will be first for many wrestlers, who had gained eligibility by medalling for the first time in the nationals. Kuldeep Singh will be the head coach and he will be assisted by Pardeep Kumar Sharma, Sahil Sharma, Sukhwinder Kaur and Shiksha. Dhirendra Pratap Singh and Sadhna Gautam will be the physiotherapists while Jagroshni will be the masseuse.
