Wrestling News: Wrestlers stranded without power at national camp, Vinesh Phogat tweets

Ace Indian wrestler Vinesh Phogat said that she and other wrestlers at the national camp in Lucknow were stranded without electricity for over 24 hours. While Vinesh made her displeasure known on social media, the real reason behind the delay in restoration of power was the time taken to fix the local transformer. In fact, Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju also replied to Vinesh on Twitter and said that the matter was being resolved at the earliest. Also, an official in the ministry confirmed that power had been restored at the facility. Vinesh recently won gold at the Yasar Dogu International wrestling meet. This was her second consecutive gold in the 53 kg category, having also won at the Spanish Grand Prix.
