Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt could not able to get any medal at Rio Olympics Games 2016 despite of his great efforts.
The reports revealed that Yogeshwar Dutt will be given silver medal as he was the second place finisher at Rio after Besik Kudukhov of Russia. No official affirmation has been done yet.
“The four-time world champion and two-time Olympic medallist Kudukhov, who had died in a car crash in 2013 in southern Russia, has been found positive for dope test conducted by the World Anti-Doping Agency”, Russian agency, flowrestling.org reported.
In London Olympic Games, Yogeshwar Dutt had achieved bronze medal in men's 60kg freestyle category. Now, this time he may join Sushil Kumar as another silver medallist from the 2012 Olympics.
United World Wrestling (UWW) Committee and International Olympic Committee will provide the official affirmation of this news.
In the first round of men’s 65 category, Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt would be given silver medal once they got permission from Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) and World body (UWW).
In any case, before the Rio Games, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) re-tried his example, which was gathered amid the 2012 London Games. Tests are currently hidden away up to 10 years to utilize propelled testing techniques to catch dope-corrupted competitors.
"The examples of five wrestlers, including Russia's Besik Kudukhov (60 kg) and Uzbekistan's Artur Taymazov's (120 kg), have tried positive for banned substances. Kudukhov fizzled an imbecile test in re-trial of tests gathered amid the London Games. For Taymazov's situation, the re-tests go back to tests gathered from the Beijing Games (2008). Kudukhov is a silver medallist and Taymazon a gold-decoration victor. They will lose their awards.
With Kudukhov testing positive, Yogeshwar Dutt of India will get the silver," a source in United World Wrestling (UWW), the overseeing body, told The Indian Express.
In 2012 Games, Yogeshwar lost his pre-quarterfinal to Kudukhov. The Russian wrestler achieved the last, and Yogeshwar got another chance to win an award in the repechage round. In repechage he beat Franklin Gomez of Puerto Rico, Masoud Esmaeilpour of Iran and Ri Jong-myong of North Korea to secure bronze.
