Is it time to worry about another trial, or start preparing for Olympics, asks Aman Sehrawat

New Delhi, May 15 (PTI) Aman Sehrawat, the lone male Indian wrestler to have qualified for Paris Olympics, finds it annoying that instead of shifting his focus on preparing for the Games, he still has to worry about cutting his weight to prepare for another round of trials.

The 20-year-old Under-23 world champion saved India the blushes by securing a berth in men’s freestyle 57kg for the Games at the recent World Qualifiers in Istanbul. In 11 other weight categories where the country’s male wrestlers competed, India drew a blank as none of them could qualify.

“So many times I have cut my weight. How many times I have to do it? It causes a lot of weakness. I don’t understand do I think of now winning trials again or start preparing for Olympics. I think the work I need to put for a good preparation will be affected if I am asked to go through the trials again,” Aman told
