Sushil had earlier hinted that the Rio Olympics would be his last but now he is very much open to a fifth Olympic appearance in Tokyo 2020. The 32-year-old's longtime friend and fellow Yogeshwar Dutt has already made it clear that Rio will be his final Olympic appearance.
     
"I don't remember saying that Rio will be my last Olympics. That is not my wish. My wish is to keep competing as long as I can and why not 2020 Olympics if I am able to maintain fitness. Jab taq body fit hain tab taq khelte rahenge (I will keep wrestling as long as my body holds)," Sushil said after the launch of his brainchild Sushil4Sports, an initiative aimed at supporting athletes from various disciplines.
     
Sushil will have to beat Narsingh Yadav in the men's 74kg trials to reach Rio. Narsingh has already earned India an Olympic quota place by winning a bronze in the World Championship in Las Vegas in September last year.
