“Sonam has replied to the notice and promised that she won’t repeat it. The federation will soon take a decision on the matter,” a WFI source said.

Vinesh has spoken about the mental trauma she has been going through post her Tokyo Olympics debacle but it seems it has not convinced the WFI. She wrote that she may not return to the mat.

“The federation is awaiting a response to the notice. WFI has nothing to do with what she writes otherwise,” said the source. Vinesh has time till August 16 to respond to WFI.

The federation had said the Vinesh threw tantrums after reaching Tokyo from Hungary. She not only refused to stay near her Indian teammates but she also did not train with them during the competition, according to the WFI.
