Yogeshwar Dutt, who failed to win a qualify match at 2016 Rio Olympics, might have some very good news waiting for him. His London Olympics 2012 bronze, in all likelihood, shall be upgraded to silver after the second-place finisher, the late Besik Kudukhov (60kg) of Russia, tested positive for doping.There has been no official confirmation about the development so far. As per Russian agency, flowrestling.org, the four-time world champion and two-time Olympic medallist Kudukhov's, who had died in a car crash in 2013 in southern Russia, sample tested positive for a banned substance by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
As a result, Yogeshwar, who had bagged a bronze medal in men's 60kg freestyle category in London Games, may move up from bronze to silver and join Sushil Kumar as another silver medallist from the 2012 Olympics.
