Sushil withdraws from Asian Championships.

Double-Olympic medallist wrestler Sushil Kumar has reportedly withdrawn his name from the Indian squad that was to travel Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for the 2018 Asian Wrestling Championships. According to a report in The Tribune, Sushil has cited a knee injury for his decision in a letter to the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI). The 34-year-old picked up the knee injury during the trials for the Asian Championships and Commonwealth Games last year where he beat Praveen Rana. He feels participating in the event might worsen his knee and he wants to focus on the upcoming Commonwealth Games in April.
