The Delhi High Court on Friday deferred the hearing pertaining to Sushil Kumar’s appeal of holding fresh trials against Narsingh Yadav for 74kg 2016 Rio Olympics berth to May 30.
Earlier, HC on May 17 directed the WFI to consider Olympic medallist Kumar’s plea to hold a trial between him and Yadav to decide India’s representative.
Yadav had secured a quota for India in the 74 kg category during the Wrestling World Championships in Las Vegas last year and was thought to be the Indian representative for the Olympics.
However, Kumar challenged that assumption and has called for a bout between him and Yadav to decide who takes the berth.
