PS sources say coaches-Bajwa meeting in Meerut ended with no conclusion

Facing a huge protest over its proposal to organise one-bout Asian Games and World Championships trials for protesting wrestlers, the Indian Olympic Association (IOA ) ad-hoc committee met national coaches but if sources are to be believed, then there was no productive conclusion that came out of the meeting  between the national coaches and IOA's ad-hoc panel member Bhupender Singh Bajwa in Meerut (Uttar Pradesh).

Dates of trials and how they can be organised were some of the topics of discussion during the meeting. If the OCA allows an extension of the deadline till August 15 then selection trials can be conducted close to that date. However, if it does not entertain the IOA's request then the trials have to be conducted latest by July 15, the last date for sending the final entries for the Asiad.

According to the sources, It all depends on the reply of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). If the OCA allows an extension of the deadline till August 15 then selection trials can be conducted close to that date. However, if it does not entertain the IOA's request then the trials have to be conducted latest by July 15, the last date for sending the final entries for the Asiad.
