Tainted athletes in Delhi for B sample test
New Delhi: Two of the six athletes who flunked the Doping tests on July 1 have been summoned by National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) and will be facing a panel in Delhi to undergo B sample tests.
4X400m relay runner Sini Jose and 400m runner Tiana Mary Thomas were tested positive for stanzolol and methandienone along with several other athletes are presently in Delhi.
Earlier, sprinter Mandeep Kaur, who was a member of the Indian quartet that won 4x400m relay gold in Commonwealth and Asian Games was suspended by for using banned drugs.
Like Mandeep Kaur, Sini Jose was also found to have used anabolic steroids, a class of banned substances that are hard to find in any legal food supplement.
Tiana Mary Thomas had another anabolic steroid epimethandiol in her urine sample.
However, the summons by NADA for Sini and Thomas could give both the athletes a second chance as it is likely that they would be undergoing B sample tests as well.
All the Dope tainted athletes including Sini Jose were axed from the Asian Championships starting on July 7 in, Japan. The 37-member Indian team would be leaving for Kobe later in the day.
