Yogeshwar Dutt Bronze Medal in London Olympic 2016
Question in detailRumor mills are abuzz that Yogeswar Dutt bronze medal could be upgraded to silver. This is so because the London Olympic silver medalist Besik Kudukhov of Russia has been found guilty of doping violation by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). However, the result has yet not been officially confirmed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the United World Wrestling (UWW). If they confirm the results, Yogeswar Dutt's London Olympic bronze will turn into silver.
Four years after the London Olympic, Yogeswar's bronze may turn into silver. Yogeswar Dutt won the bronze medal by beating Ri Jong-myong of North Korea in London Olympic 2012. If Yogeswar Dutt bronze medal is upgraded to silver, he will join Sushil Kumar as the second Indian silver medalist from the 2012 London Olympics. WADA has recently decided to retest Kudukhov's samples, which returned with several positive results. If the results are found to be positive again, the star wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt can be entitled for the silver medal.
