Khel Ratna Award 2012 for Vijay Kumar, Yogeshwar Dutt

Olympic heroes, shooter Vijay Kumar and wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt were on Saturday jointly recommended for the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, the country's highest sporting honor.  Vijay Kumar, who won a silver in the 25m rapid fire event said he forwarded his nomination only after winning in London. "I have been recommended for the highest achievement in sports. I had spoken to the HP CM Prem Kumar Dhumal from London and he forwarded my nomination. Now finally the world has taken note of me as it's biggest achievement of my career. Earlier also I have won many medals. I am happy to be honoured," Vijay said. 
Yogeshwar said that its a proud moment for him. "The immediate recognition of the feat is even more delightful. It will definitely motivate me to do well for my country in the future events," he said. "It is not only a great thing for wrestling but also for the entire sports, as it will inspire the budding athletes to bring laurels to their country," Yogeshwar added.
