Sushil Kumar should go to Rio Olympics to support Narsingh Yadav from sidelines: Abhinav Bindra
The court observed that Sushil also participated in previous Olympics without going through selection trials before the sporting event.
New Delhi: Minutes after Delhi High Court dismissed wrestler Sushil Kumar's plea, seeking trial with Narsingh Yadav in the 74 Kg freestyle category for the Rio Olympics, ace Indian shooter Abhinav Bindra offered a piece of advice for two-time Olympic medalist.
It seems, that Bindra wants Sushil to show true sportsmanship by supporting Narsingh from the sidelines during Rio Games.
The only Indian to win an individual Olympic gold for the country, Bindra on Monday tweeted: 'Sushil Kumar is a legend. He should go to Rio - to support Nar singh from the sidelines. Will only enhance his stature'

Earlier in the day, HC justice Manmohan said though Sushil Kumar is a "legendary" wrestler, but WFI's contention that Narsingh Pancham Yadav is better in 74 kg category cannot be termed as "unreasonable" or "perverse".
The court also observed that Sushil Kumar has himself participated in previous Olympics without going through selection trials before the sporting event.
The court also said since the Olympics is scheduled in August, there is a high probability that the wrestlers might sustain injuries if the selection trial is conducted now.
