Ace shot-putter Manpreet Kaur tests positive for banned stimulant


New Delhi: Ace Indian shot-putter Manpreet Kaur failed a dope test conducted by National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) officials in course of the Federation Cup National Championships held in Patiala from June 1-4.
The gold medal winner in the recently-concluded Asian Athletics Championships in Bhubaneswar was found positive for a banned stimulant dimethylbutylamine.
The veteran thrower of the country might not be excluded from the upcoming World Athletics Championships in London next month as the stimulant comes under the unspecified category of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
However, she might be stripped of her gold medal she clinched in Bhubaneswar if her confirmatory urine sample 'B' test also returns positive.
The 21-year-old have to prove her innocence before a NADA disciplinary panel.
