New Delhi, Jan 9:
After days of speculation on her fitness, former Commonwealth Games gold-medallist Geeta Phogat was today declared fit to compete in the ongoing Pro Wrestling League with her franchise UP Dangal insisting that she would compete tomorrow.
The team declared that Geeta is now fit and will be available for the encounter against NCR Punjab Royals tomorrow. Her sister Babita has, however, been ruled out of the event due to injury.
The Uttar Pradesh franchise had named themselves as UP Dangal after inclusion of the much in demand real-life Dangal girls in the team.
“In the last match against Mumbai Maharathi, Babita was replaced by national champion Pinki, but unfortunately she was blocked in the 58kg category. She was facing Olympic bronze medallist Marwa Amri of Tunisia. But now with Geeta’s availability her supporters are excited. (PTI)
