Yogeshwar Dutt, Vijay Kumar recommended for Khel Ratna
London Olympic medallists Yogeshwar Dutt and Vijay Kumar were Saturday recommended for the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award while cricketer Yuvraj Singh will be receiving the Arjuna award.

Vijay won a silver medal in 25m pistol shooting while Yogeshwar grabbed the bronze in wrestling.

There was no official confirmation of the list of Khel Ratna awardees but obviously some of the names in the list have been leaked to some section of the media.

When contacted, spokesman of the Sports Ministry Rajesh Malhotra told IANS through SMS that "The list is not out yet, it will take 2/3 days to get the approval of the minister".

The other London Olympics medallists Sushil Kumar (silver in wrestling), Mary Kom (bronze in boxing), Gagan Narang (bronze, shooting) and Saina Nehwal (bronze, badminton), have already received the prestigious award.

Yuvraj, who braved a troubled last year and recovered from a rare germ cell cancer after undergoing chemotheraphy, was included in the Indian squad for the Twenty20 World Cup.

"Honoured to get the Arjuna award." tweeted Yuvraj.
