India’s ace wrestler and two-time Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar today hailed the decision of NADA to acquit Olympic-bound wrestler Narsingh Yadav from doping charges after which he would be able to represent India in the upcoming Rio Olympics. 

Sushil and Narsingh were locked in a bitter legal battle as to who would represent the country in the 74kg category.

Narsingh won the quota place while Sushil wanted a trial.

"Bahot Khushi ki baat hain. Mera support pahle bhi thaa, aaj bhi bhain aur kal bhi rahega. (It's a great news. My support was there earlier also, even today and will remain tomorrow). Go win for me and the country," the legendary Olympian tweeted.

He also lamented that wrestling in the past few months went through this tumultous phase.

"very unfortunate 2  see the Wrestling go through this. I hv given my life to ot (sic) & wl always support fellow wrestlers," Sushil stated in the micro-blogging site.
