Sushil, who won a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics and a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Games, has not been included from the list of probables by the Indian Wrestling Federation.

The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), however, maintained that the two-time medallist is not yet out of contention.

"This list of probables is not sent by WFI but by the United World Wrestling. After all the trials are over, the world body compiles the names of all those wrestlers who have secured Olympic berths for their country in various divisions at different qualifying tournaments and send it to their respective Olympic Federations,” WFI assistant secretary Vinod Tomar was quoted as saying by Times of India.
