Asian champion shot-putter Manpreet Kaur fails dope test

New Delhi: Asian champion shot-putter Manpreet Kaur has been caught in the dope net after testing positive for a banned stimulant, a massive embarrassment for the country which might lose the gold medal clinched by her earlier this month.

Kaur, who won a gold medal in the recently-concluded Asian Athletics Championships in Bhubaneswar, tested positive for stimulant dimethylbutylamine.

Later, she won a gold each in the Federation Cup (June 1 -4), Asian Championships (July 6-9) and the National Inter- State Championships which concluded at Guntur yesterday.

Early this month, decathlete Jagtar Singh tested positive for banned Meldonium and he was pulled out of the Indian team for the Asian Championships. Jagtar's test was also done on his urine sample collected during the Federation Cup in Patiala.

In May, top 400m hurdler Jithin Paul was told to leave the national camp at NIS Patiala after his bag was found to have the banned drug -- Meldonium -- in a search conducted by NADA officials.

He is put under provisional suspension and his hearing before the NADA Panel is going on.
