Indian female player Vinesh Phogat is a big contender for an Olympic medal in wrestling.
Talking about the last few months, Vinesh has already made his intentions known by winning major international wrestling tournaments and securing the number one ranking.
Although in flashback, it was believed that his medal was confirmed in the 2016 Rio Olympics itself.
After the Olympics in 2016, at the Delhi airport, where other players were being welcomed with drums and drums, Vinesh, sitting on a wheel chair, was almost tearful.
I remember that day of Rio Olympics in 2016 between Tokyo Olympics. Wrestler Vinesh Phogat was competing with Sun Yan of China.
Vinesh was in good form and everyone was waiting for a medal but during that time Vinesh got injured. The injury on his right knee was so severe that Vinesh, groaning and groaning, had to be carried on a stretcher.
At the same time, Sakshi Malik was preparing for her bronze match, which Sakshi won.
While everyone was congratulating Sakshi for an Olympic medal, Vinesh’s dream was shattered. But even in that injured state, the doctors told Vinesh that the muscles are so strong that if they follow the medical advice, everything will be fine in five months.
From the disappointment of 2016 to the hopeful Tokyo Olympics
When Vinesh was to receive the Arjuna Award in 2017, the question in her mind was how she would take the award sitting in a wheelchair.
Fighting with similar negative thoughts every day, Vinesh finally started the practice again and his tweet was – After six months of anger, tears, patience, doubts and hard work…
In a conversation with the PRESS24 NEWS, Vinesh had told, “After getting injured in the Rio Olympics, many times it felt like the career is over. I used to ask myself why this happened to me? I used to talk to myself and I explained. That second chance is not given to everyone. And now that the second chance has been given in the Olympics, the dream has to be fulfilled.”
This stubbornness to fulfill the dream has brought Vinesh from 2016 to Tokyo Olympics.
Tau ji’s strict training and mother’s hard work
Recalling the stories of childhood, Vinesh says, “Tau ji used to give wrestling training to our sisters in the village since childhood. The only thing they used to say is to win an Olympic medal. We children used to get fed up and thought that after all this What is an Olympics and if you get it, ask.
Today Vinesh is a big contender to win the Olympic medal. Number one in the world.
Vinesh’s uncle Mahavir Phogat laid the foundation of his training and career and the stories of his rigorous training are famous. At the same time, his mother’s efforts have also been built in Vinesh’s hard work.
As a single mother, it was a big challenge for her to bring up Vinesh in the village where she often had to hear that if she had a child without a father, then she should get married or why the daughter roams around wearing such short shorts?
Cheerful Vinesh’s smile will become Tokyo?
By the way, it is famous about Vinesh, who removes the sweat from the front on the field, that she laughs a lot – every time, everywhere.
And today, this player has every reason to smile and laugh – after all, how many players are lucky to have their name written with Olympic medalist Vinesh Phogat, if they win an Olympic medal this time.
By the way, apart from the Olympics, Vinesh has another dream. Vinesh is a very good foodie. He told me, “I want to taste every possible food. One of my dreams is to travel the world and eat all kinds of dishes.”
It is hoped that along with winning an Olympic medal, Vinesh’s dream of visiting Japan and eating Japanese dishes will also be fulfilled.
