Last updated on October 9, 2019

Indian sprinter Nirmala Sheoran was given a four-year doping ban and stripped from her 400m and 4x400m relay names in the 2017 Asian Championships. The Athletics Integrity Unit, which oversees field and track doping instances, states that she tested positive for its steroids drostanolone and methenolone in sample shot at the Inter-State match in Guwahati in June 2018.

The National Anti-Doping Laboratory at New Delhi returned a negative effect, but the World Anti-doping Agency re-tested the sample of four Indian athletes, such as Sheoran, in Montreal.

Nirmala, 24, whose biological passport additionally revealed irregular blood readings,” approved the fee, didn’t ask for a hearing and was prepared to take the results,” that the AIU explained. The banning was backdated to June 29, 2018. Her outcomes from August 2016 to November 2018 were disqualified.

All members of the 4x400m relay triumph in the Asian Championships will shed their awards.
