Dutee Chand: Indian athlete Dutee Chand failed in dope test, temporarily suspended by NADA

India’s number one sprinter Dutee Chand is in trouble. Dutee Chand has failed in the dope test and a temporary suspension has been imposed on her. Dutee Chand was found guilty of consuming banned anabolic steroids. Dutee, who finished second in 100 and 200 meters at the Asian Games 2018, is the current national champion in 100 metres.

The notification issued by the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) said, “Dutee Chand has been found guilty of consuming Andarine, Ostarine and Ligandrol.” Dutee Chand’s failure in the dope test before the Asian Games to be held this year is no less than a setback for India. The Asian Games will be played in Hangzhou in the month of September-October this year.

The letter sent to Dutee Chand said, ‘I inform you that your A sample has been tested at NDTL (National Dope Test Laboratory) as per the procedure of World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the result has come positive.’ This sample was taken outside the tournament on December 5 last year.

In the letter, Dutee Chand was also warned about its consequences. It said, ‘Read the contents of the letter carefully in which its results have been told. When contacted, Dutee said, ‘I have not received any information. I have given many tests, but AFI has not told me anything. I am getting information about this from social media only.

Dutee Chand had also participated in the previous CWG games.

Dutee Chand, who won two silver medals at the Jakarta Asian Games (2018), set a national record in 100 meters by clocking 11.17 seconds in the event held in Patiala in June 2021. Dutee Chand was also able to qualify for the 100 meter race in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Dutee Chand’s last assignment was the Birmingham Commonwealth Games held in July-August last year, where she finished fourth in the first round heat with a timing of 11.55 seconds. She was also a member of the women’s 4×100 m relay team, which finished fifth in the final.
