Injured Vikas Gowda doubtful for 2016 Rio Olympics

first_imgAce discus thrower Vikas Gowda has suffered a “minor” shoulder injury, and his participation at the Rio Olympics is now subject to fitness. The men’s discus throw event of Rio Olympics is scheduled on 12 August.The 32-year-old Gowda, who won gold medals in the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games, is based in the United States and he has not taken part in any competitive event since making the Rio cut in December last year.”I have spoken to Gowda’s father and he said his son has suffered a minor shoulder injury. I cannot send a doctor to US and assess Gowda’s injury. I have to believe in what his father says. His father says it’s a minor injury and he should be fine for Olympics. I have to believe in that,” Athletics Federation of India president Adille Sumariwalla said.”He (Gowda) will have to prove his fitness sometime before the start of Olympics. It will not be a trial but he will have to prove that he is fit to take part in Olympics.”Gowda will undergo some kind of throwing session from which we can know he is fit. We will get to know this from his father and the coach,” he said.Besides Gowda, three other Rio-qualified athletes – marathon runner Kavita Raut and 20km race walkers Khushbir Kaur and Sapna – have also been placed subject to fitness.”Kavita Raut, Khushbir and Sapna will also have to prove fitness before going to Rio,” the AFI president said, while issuing the names of 38 athletes, including 18 women, who have qualified for the Olympics.advertisementSETBACK FOR AFIYesterday was the deadline for Rio qualification in track and field events.Gowda, Kavita, Khushbir and Sapna have been marked “subject to fitness” against their names in the list.Sumariwalla conceded that it was a “setback” for the AFI that Gowda has suffered an injury but expressed delight that a record 38 athletes have qualified for the Summer Games.The injury means that Gowda will go straight to the discus throw event in the Olympics without any competition. He used to compete in some legs of the elite Diamond League series every year but this season he has not taken part in any so far.A few legs of the Diamond League series are scheduled in the run-up to the Olympics but he is unlikely to take part in any of them.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
