Olympic-bound young Indian wrestler Anshu Malik on Friday has withdrawn from the Poland Open after catching fever and will be in isolation as a precautionary measure till she gets her COVID-19 test report. It has been learnt that when reigning Asian champion Anshu reported for weigh-in for the 57kg category on Friday morning, she had a fever, and was suggested that she withdraws from the competition. Her parents had contracted the virus last month and till the time they recovered, she and her younger brother had stayed in a hotel in Rohtak. She had come back home only after they recovered.

“Anshu did not want to miss the competition but as a precautionary measure she has been isolated and has given a sample to confirm if she is infected with coronavirus or not,” a source in the Indian camp told PTI.

“It does not look like COVID-19 since she has been in good shape since landing in Warsaw. But such are the times that you can’t risk, so she is being tested,” the source added.
