India’s star female grappler Geeta Phogat, who won the nation’s first Gold medal in wrestling at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, is now gearing up intensely for the 2018 edition of the mega event.
“A year is left for mega events, Commonwealth and Asian games. So I have started my practice, which I am going to accelerate in a month,” Geeta said as quoted by PTI.
The 2018 Commonwealth Games will be held in Australia from April 4-18 and will be followed by 2018 Asian Games that is scheduled in August-September in Indonesia.
The 28-year-old wrestler, who competes in the 54 kg weight category, revealed that she’s sweating hard for the upcoming selection trails.
“My mind right now is focused on practice. So, I have decided to grace only three to four functions in a month,” she added.
