In the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, India has high hopes from women’s boxer MC Mary Kom, wrestler Bajrang and weightlifter Jeremy Lalrinunga. Bajrang Wrestler Bajrang Punia said that he will be seen in a new form in next year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo. The Indian team has hopes of a medal at the Tokyo Olympics from Bajrang. Bajrang’s performance so far has been extremely good though ‘leg defense’ has been his biggest weakness and his opponents have always taken advantage of it. Many experts believe that this weakness in the Olympics may outweigh Bajrang, although despite this weakness, this Indian wrestler has been the world’s number one wrestler in the 65 kg category in 2018. He said, ‘My coach says that if I get on the mat again, I have to surprise my opponent. So in Tokyo you will see a new Bajrang on the mat. He said, ‘People will say that the game of Bajrang has changed completely. Whether it is technology, dum kham or style, I have worked on everything. This wrestler’s first tournament in the new season will be in January. For this, he is engaged in preparations.
Mary com Veteran boxer MC Mary Kom has also confirmed her place for Olympic qualifiers by defeating young boxer Nikhat Zarine in a trial. However, there was a dispute with his entry. Now she would like to leave the controversy behind and win gold in the Olympics. After winning this match, Mary Kom also refused to join hands with Zarine and said that I do not like such people. Mary Kom instructed Zarine further that if there is anything to be proved, prove it inside the ring, not outside the ring.
Bajrang Wrestler Bajrang Punia said that he will be seen in a new form in next year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Mary Kom said that if Zarin expects respect from others, then he should also respect others. Both these boxers play in the same category (51 kg). For some time, a round of accusations between the two is going on. Mary Kom was initially given direct entry to the Olympic qualifiers but after Nikhat’s objection, the boxing association had to prepare for the trial. Jeremy Lalrinunga Jeremy Lalrinunga, the first Indian weightlifter to win a gold medal at the Youth Olympic Games, is trying to make it to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Jeremy has won two silver medals in the 67kg weight category this year. The 17-year-old player said, “I am preparing to qualify for the 2020 Olympics.” Although he has only got a silver medal in the EGAT Cup International Championship and the sixth Qatar International Championship in Thailand, Jeremy is excited about Khelo India’s winning gold in the first and second seasons. This player said that young players from Khelo India get a good opportunity to experience. Jeremy has also said that he is fulfilling his father’s dream by representing the country. Jeremy’s father was also a junior boxing champion but he never got a chance to represent the country. He said, “My father is the biggest inspiration for my career.Ever since I decided to try my hand at Bharatolan, he has given my full support since then.He was a boxer, he has shared his experiences with me as a player.He was a junior champion but he could not get the opportunity to represent the country, so I am realizing his dream.
