New Delhi: Indian Wrestler Bajrang Punia has received his visa for travel to the United Kingdom for the Commonwealth Games 2022. Bajrang, who will be travelling to the US for training ahead of CWG had obtained his US Visa earlier this month, but his UK visa was awaited owing to which he was unable to leave for his training in the US.

The Sports Ministry, through the Ministry of External Affairs, got in touch with the British High Commission to seek the UK Visa for Bajrang, which has now been obtained. On several occasions the MEA has consistently helped the Sports Ministry to facilitate the visa of athletes travelling abroad for competition and training ahead of the CWG.

Bajrang as well as wrestler Deepak Punia will leave this weekend from India. They will train at the Michigan University until July 30, following which both will leave for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The Union Sports Ministry’s Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) has facilitated the exposure trip. The training stint in USA will be helpful for preparation for the Commonwealth Games and upcoming major competitions like the Wrestling World Championship, scheduled for September in Belgrade. A total of 111 foreign exposures in various sports have been funded by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports after Tokyo 2020 Olympics in the lead up to CWG.
