After claiming gold in the Delhi Commonwealth Games, India wrestler Rajendra Kumar now wants to continue with his form to fetch glory in next month's Asian Games at Guangzhou, China.
“I will go to the arena of Guangzhou Asian Games with the confidence of winning a medal,” Kumar, who is currently in a preparation camp at Sonipat, told PTI. “However, I cannot claim which medal I will win,” he said over phone.
Rajendra Kumar, who clinched gold in 55kg Greco-Roman category by defeating Pakistan's Azhar Hussain, said he has been practising more rigorously for the Asian Games.
“I have been practicing more for the Asian Games than what I did for the CWG. At the Asian Games I have to take on the grapplers, who had excelled in international competitions,” said Kumar, who works as a Ticket Collector (TC) in Western Railway at Ratlam, around 100km from here.
Rajendra Kumar said he was not so confident about winning the CWG medal as he was suffering from typhoid a week before his gold winning performance. — PTI
