Rio Olympic 2016: Interview with Indian wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt Stretching himself against an injury prone body, Olympic medallist Yogeshwar Dutt today said that the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro will be his last appearance at the quadrennial extravaganza and he is leaving no stone unturned in his quest to sign off with a gold medal. “Rio will be my last Olympics and I am extremely keen to sign off with a medal. I am all focussed on my preparations and aiming for a gold medal,” Yogeshwar told The 32-year-old, however, made it clear that he would not retire after the Olympic Games and might take part in the Asian and Commonwealth Games if his body permits. “I would not be retiring after the Olympics. Fitness permitting, I would still like to represent India in the Asian and Commonwealth Games in 2018.
