While Vinesh wasn't staying with the Indian group in Tokyo, she was available in the Games Village and adhering to the timetable given to her. There is no standard that expresses that she expected to prepare with her colleagues. However, her wearing a Nike singlet, and not the authority Olympics-endorsed singlet, was a break of agreement. 

The Wrestling Federation of India has forced a transitory restriction on Vinesh Phogat, evening out three 'charges' on the 53-kg free-form wrestler, giving her till the finish of this current week to react with her protection. 

“The first charge is that she refused to stay with the Indian team (during the Tokyo Olympics). The second charge was that she refused to train with the Indian team,” WFI president Brij Bhushan Singh told The Indian Express. “Another charge against her is that the Indian Olympic Association singlet, which is approved, was not worn by her. She instead wore her sponsor Nike’s singlet. She was not supposed to wear that.” 

When inquired as to whether this was the first run through the alliance has disapproved of Vinesh, Singh surrendered that prior offenses were disregarded because of the height of the competitor. 

"She can't contest in any public or other homegrown occasion until she documents an answer and WFI takes an official choice," a WFI source told PTI.
