Weightlifter Seema, who won a silver medal in the Commonwealth Games 2017, has failed in the dope test. On Saturday, the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) has imposed a 4-year ban on her. Nada has said in a statement “Presence of prohibited substances were found in her system during an ongoing Championship to enhance her performance which amounted to a clear cut case of cheating and outright violation of National Anti-Doping rules,”
“The analysis report of her sample returned an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) for presence of a prohibited substance namely Hydroxy-4-methoxy Temoxifen (Metabolite of Tamoxifen), Selective Estrogen Receptor Modular (SERM) Metenolone, Anabolic Steroid Ostarine ( Enobosram), Selective Androgen Receptor Modular (SARM).”
These substances are all non-specified as per the WADA prohibited list of 2019.
Former Olympian boxer, Sumit Sangwan also failed the dope test. Nada banned him for a year on Friday. Sumit, who landed at the 2012 London Olympics, was sampled by Nada, in October. The information was given by Naveen Aggarwal, director general of the National Anti Doping Agency.
