Sushil Kumar quits as National Sports Observer for wrestling

Close on the heels of star boxer MC Mary Kom’s resignation, double Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar has also quit his role as a National Sports Observer for wrestling.

He was among 12 national observers appointed in March this year. In a press release, the Sports Ministry said, as both the top athletes are still active in their respective fields, wrestling and boxing, they felt that this could be seen as conflict of interest.
