Seema Punia to be dope-tested by NADA

Friday, March 09, 2018

Patiala: Discus thrower Seema Punia will be subjected to an out-of-competition dope test before the Commonwealth Games as she could not be tested during the 22nd Federation Cup National Senior Athletics Championships here.

Punia won a gold on the opening day on March 5 with a best throw of 61.05m at the NIS Patiala but she could not be dope tested as National Anti Doping Agency officials did not turn up on that day.

The NADA officials reached here the next day on March 6 but by that time Punia had left for home.

The NADA has now asked the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) to contact her and provide a location where she can be tested. The AFI has done so and the NADA officials are travelling to Sonipat to collect her urine sample.

"We have sent NADA the details of the location in Haryana where their officials can collect her dope sample," an official at the national camp here told PTI on condition of anonymity.

"NADA officials reached here late by a day. To be fair to her, Seema is not bound to wait for the NADA to come. She is not at fault," the official added.

With her gold-winning effort, Seema had also achieved the AFI norms of 59.00m for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. It was Seema's best mark in two years and she was competing in her first competition of the year.
