Newly-elected WFI governing body annuls all decisions made by temporary panel


The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has cancelled all decisions made by the previous ad-hoc panel regarding Olympic selection criteria and the hosting of the senior National Championship. The newly-elected body of the WFI met to discuss the way forward, with 13 out of 15 elected members present. The new Secretary General and Senior Vice-President, who are part of the Anita Sheoran panel, did not attend the meeting. The WFI source stated that all decisions made by the ad-hoc panel have been cancelled, including the selection trial criteria for the Olympics. The U15 and junior Nationals will now be held in Gonda from December 28 to 30. The first General Body Meeting of the newly-elected federation will take place in New Delhi on either January 11 or 12, 2024. The ad-hoc committee, chaired by Bhupender Singh Bajwa, was formed earlier this year to address issues within the WFI.,

The newly-elected Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) body has made a significant move by canceling all decisions taken by the ad-hoc panel. This decision comes as a means to establish a fresh start and bring transparency to the sport. The ad-hoc panel, which was appointed by the International Olympic Committee, had been overseeing the wrestling federation’s affairs for the past four years. The cancellation of their decisions aims to ensure that the new WFI body can independently and effectively govern the sport in India. This move is expected to pave the way for positive changes and further development in wrestling within the country.
