Sushil Kumar leaving no stone unturned for third Commonwealth Games Gold medalMarch 21, 2018
Two time Commonwealth Games gold medallist Sushil Kumar is preparing for another win in the Gold Coast. The 34-year-old is focussing on his personal training to accomplish a feat not achieved by any Indian till date. Kumar is travelling to Georgia for a 10-day training stint with his coach Vladimir Merstervishvili and sparring partner Harpool Singh.
Controversies have never left Sushil Kumar’s back; however, he says that he does not need to prove anything to anyone. “I have two Olympic medals. I have nothing to prove to anyone. But I have an unfulfilled dream and I came very close to it in 2012 (London Games where he won a silver). I feel I owe it to the country to get a gold at the Olympics,” he said.
He is bearing the expenses of this trip from his own pocket and wishes to make the country’s dream come true. “I have been working hard for the last four years. I have worked on my tactics and I am confident of a good show despite people’s apprehensions,” he added.
