Ace wrestler Vinesh Phogat is set to be recommended by the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) for India's highest sporting honour the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award. This will be the second consecutive time that the 25-year-old would be recommended for the award.

WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh will finalise the recommendations and send it to the Sports Ministry on Monday. "For the Khel Ratna, Vinesh is our sole recommendation," WFI secretary Vinod Tomar told IANS on Sunday.

Vinesh was recommended for the prestigious sporting honour last year as well, alongside Bajrang Punia, but the latter ended up winning the award alongwith 2016 Paralympics silver medallist Deepa Malik. Vinesh had previously won the Arjuna Award in 2016.
