Indian Olympic silver medalist Ravi Dahiya was playing his own match when wrestler Satender Malik assaulted referee Jagbir Singh in the KD Jadhav Hall in New Delhi at the IGI Stadium. The wrestler believes that all these things should not happen and the sport should be played in true spirit. “It was not my game, so I could not see, but all I want to say is, all of this should not have happened and everyone should play with true spirit of the game,” Dahiya told ANI.

The 24-year-old joker was selected for Commonwealth Games 2022 in the 57kg weight category and is looking for a gold medal at the four-year event.

“We are preparing hard for that and looking for a gold medal for the country. So we are preparing accordingly and if you people continue to pray and support, we will win gold for the country,” Dahiya said.

Ravi Dahiya bagged an Olympic medal in his first appearance and is looking for a gold in his first CWG appearance. Five more wrestlers are also going with him, including Bajrang Punia.

“Everyone is playing well and we also have some experienced players. Bajrang is playing his third Commonwealth Games. So we are learning from him. This is my first Commonwealth Games. So we will go together and try to win gold medal for the country,” he said.

Wrestling was not part of the initial list of Commonwealth Games 2026 to be played in Victoria, but the Sonipat-born wrestler feels that the Wrestling Federation of India will do anything to get it back.

“We do not want the sport to be removed from Commonwealth Games and our WFI is adopting it as well. So, we are with him,” he said.
