The Indian Olympic Association (IOA)-appointed ad hoc committee to run the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has announced that the national camp in the run-up to the Paris Olympics will commence on February 9.

The panel, which was formed after the ‘suspension’ of the newly-elected WFI, said the national camp would be held after the national championships, scheduled to take place in Jaipur from February 3 to 5.

The dates for the national championships had been announced before the elections, but the newly-elected WFI changed the venue and dates. Now, the ad hoc panel has confirmed the dates for the national event.

Following the conclusion of the national championships, the men’s camp (including Greco Roman and freestyle) will be organised at the SAI centre in Sonepat, while the women’s camp will be held at NIS, Patiala. Wrestlers selected from the national championships will be part of the camp.

The camp will go on until the Paris Olympics. The first target of the camp will be to prepare the wrestlers for the Olympic qualifiers: the Asian Qualification Tournament to be held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, from April 19 to 21, and the World Qualification Tournament to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, from May 9 to 12.

The camp will also prepare the athletes for the Asian championships slated to take place in Bishkek from April 11 to 16.
