The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has handed a temporary suspension to grappler Vinesh Phogat over her behaviour at the Tokyo Olympics.

The federation is now awaiting a reply from the grappler and a further course of action will be decided then. “Yes, a temporary suspension has been given, we are waiting for her reply and then we will decide further course of action,” sources within the know of developments told ANI.

The grappler had travelled to Tokyo from Hungary where she was training with coach Woller Akos. Upon arriving, she refused to stay at the Games Village and train with the other Indian team members.

Grappler Vinesh Phogat’s hopes of winning a bronze medal were dashed in the Games as her quarter-final opponent Vanesa Kaladzinskaya of Belarus lost in the semi-final of the Tokyo Olympics.

Last week, Vinesh Phogat lost in the quarterfinals of the women’s Freestyle 53kg event at the Tokyo Olympics after going down against Belarus’ Vanesa at the Makuhari Messe Hall A Mat B.
