Wrestlers make final try to qualify for Olympic

Sofia (Bulgaria): Handed an opportunity to qualify for the Tokyo Games at the fag end of his international career, veteran wrestler Amit Dhankar would go all out when he takes the mat along with 11 other Indians at the World Olympic Qualifiers, starting on Thursday. The 32-year-old had lost the national trials in the 74kg category but since national champion Sandeep Singh Mann came a cropper at the Asian Qualifiers in Almaty, the national federation gave Dhankar a chance to compete in Sofia. It is the last chance for all the wrestlers in the world to qualify for the postponed Tokyo Games. The two finalists in each category will make the cut for the Tokyo Games. Six Indian wrestlers have so far qualified for the Tokyo Olympics. PTI
