Narsingh Yadav who was scheduled to start his campaign against Zelimkhan Khadzeiv of France in the qualification round of 74 kg freestyle category today ( Friday). Earlier, India’s National Anti – Doping Agency ( NADA) had accepted Narsingh Yadav claim of sabotage. But, WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency ) appealed to The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to put a ban on him, which they accepted last night. Earlier, he cleared the exam of an abolic steroid — methandienone conducted by India’s National Anti – Doping agency. but WADA is strict in their rules and regulations.“WADA filed an urgent application before the CAS ad hoc Division to challenge the decision of NADA India to exonerate Narsingh Yadav following two positive anti-doping tests with methandienone on 25 June and 5 July 2016. The athlete asserted that he was the victim of sabotage (food/drink tampering) by another person. WADA requested that a 4-year period of ineligibility be imposed on the athlete,” the CAS said in a statement.
The CAS panel in charge of this case heard both the representatives yesterday at between 13:00 and 17:00 and at 18:45 announced their decision. And Narsingh Yadav sanctioned with a four-year ineligibility period starting today and that any period of provisional suspension or ineligibility effectively served by the athlete before the entry into force of this award shall be credited against the total period of ineligibility to be served. Furthermore, all competitive results obtained by Narsingh Yadav from and including 25 June 2016 shall be disqualified, with and all resulting consequences (including forfeiture of medals, points and prizes).”The CAS panel further stated that there was no evidence to accept Narsingh’s claim that his food/drink was spiked.This is shocking and a huge shame for India’s Anti National Doping Agency, which gave a clear chit to Narsingh Yadav on august 1. And this statement was given by NADA, “The ingestion of the prohibitive substance, in this case methandienone, appeared to be one time. …the panel concludes that the athlete deserves the benefit of Article 10.4 of the anti-doping rules of NADA 2015.”India’s Rio Olympics chef de mission, Rakesh Gupta, said that “We were hopeful after the first hearing, but CAS has upheld WADA’s appeal and now Narsingh will go back instead of participating”.
