WFI sanction lifted by UWW, which also orders that protesting wrestlers not be treated unfairly

<p>The United World Wrestling (UWW) on Tuesday removed the ban imposed on the national federation on August 23 of last year with immediate effect, which is a huge relief for the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI). Due to the international body’s ruling, Indian wrestlers are now eligible to participate in UWW competitions under the national flag.</p>

<p>Additionally, it implies that the WFI, led by Sanjay Kumar Singh, a person who is thought to be connected to previous president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, is the only organization authorized to submit formal entries for any UWW events. Additionally, the global organization will now recognize the NSF’s competitions and camps.</p>
<p>“Among other things, the UWW Bureau convened on February 9 to discuss the suspension. After reviewing all the facts and evidence, the Bureau agreed to remove the suspension under the following restrictions: The WFI must call another meeting to reconvene the Athletes’ Commission elections. Candidates for this commission must be current athletes or have only been out of the game for four years. Only athletes will be eligible to vote. No later than July 1, 2024, these elections must occur during trials or any senior national championships where this operation is permitted, according to a UWW statement.</p>
<p>Non-discrimination against wrestlers, particularly the three who complained against Brij Bhushan (Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Phogat, and Sakshi Malik), is another significant need set forward by the global organization. “The WFI must provide UWW formal assurances right once that all wrestlers will be given equal consideration for participation in all WFI events, including trials for the Olympic Games and other significant national and international competitions. The three athletes who demonstrated against the previous President’s alleged wrongdoings are included in this non-discrimination. UWW will follow up with the wrestlers in the next days and is still in contact with them, the statement said.</p>
<p>The group of three served as the public face of the January 2018 protests. Brij Bhushan, a parliamentarian for the BJP, is accused by the wrestlers of misappropriating cash and engaging in sexual harassment, among other offenses. In this context, a lawsuit is now proceeding in court against Brij Bhushan and other parties.</p>
<p>“We are going to speak with the administration and ask them to make it easier for national camps to be hosted. Sanjay Singh informed this newspaper, “We will also hold selection trials to choose the national teams for the last two Olympic qualifiers. The sports ministry ceased operations of the WFI shortly after the December 21, 2018, elections, and established an ad hoc committee consisting of three members to oversee daily operations in the nation.</p>
<p>“No one would be stopped from participating in the selection trials,” the WFI head said in reference to the requirements set down by the UWW. Everyone will be eligible to compete, regardless of whether they took part in the nationals in Pune or Jaipur. After the UWW’s ruling, we are hoping that the ministry will now let us to operate.”</p>
<p>The outcome of continuing camps</p>
<p>The sports ministry and the ad hoc panel led by Bhupender Singh Bajwa remained silent on the UWW’s judgment even after it was made public. Notably, national camps, which were announced by the ad hoc commission, started a few days ago at SAI centers in Sonepat (for men in freestyle and Greco-Roman) and Patiala (for women).</p>
<p>In response to inquiries in this respect, neither the ad hoc body nor the SAI responded. The panel also declared that March 10–11 would be the dates of the Olympic qualifying trials. It also declared that national championships for the U-15 and U-20 will be held. It’s unclear what will happen to these announcements.</p>
