Rio-bound wrestler Narsingh Yadav cries foul over dope test failure

Rio-bound wrestler Narsingh Yadav cries foul over dope test failure

I take pride in the fact that I have competed in every competition, worldwide and domestic, in an honest, fair and transparent manner and I will continue to do so.

Yadav himself has also alleged a conspiracy against him saying, "This is a conspiracy against me". Confirming the news, NADA Director General Navin Agarwal said Yadav appeared before a NADA disciplinary panel on Saturday.

Narsingh Yadav, India's hope in Rio Olympics' wrestling competition in 74kg category, has failed a dope test, National Anti Doping Agency said today.

Narsingh Yadav fought a lengthy legal battle with Sushil Kumar to earn his right to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

"I've been a professional freestyle wrestler for over 15 years and I've undergone nearly 25-30 dope tests. Till then we will have to wait", he added.

The report of his "A" sample test came out positive.

"I believe that there is foul play involved in this entire episode".

Conspiracy against him to ruin his career future.

Bryan Cranston's Donald Trump impression is very impressive
The satire, titled Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal, was directed by moviemaker Ron Howard, who also narrated the film.

Following Narsingh's positive result, strong rumours did the rounds about his food supplements being sabotaged. "I got the news last night that there is inconsistency in the sample given by Narsingh before he left for an invitational tournament in Spain earlier this month", said an official.

Rio-bound wrestler Narsingh Yadav has reportedly tested positive for a banned substance.

Narsingh had qualified for the Olympics by winning a World championship bronze medal while Sushil demanded a trial between him and Narsingh to ascertain who would represent the country in that particular weight category.

Narsingh has no previous doping infractions and the 27-year-old maintains that he has always complied with World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) and NADA requirements for random tests.

For now, though, the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has withheld Narsingh's accreditation card and the WFI has indefinitely postponed the contingent's exposure trip to Georgia.

The decision from the court brought the saga to an end and India might not have a competitor in the 74kg category in Rio at all should Yadav be suspended. "Narsingh has been handed provisional suspension as of now", the source said.

Sushil's coach Satpal expressed his regret over the incident and stated that Narsingh's exclusion from the Olympic contingent will hurt India's medal chances in Rio.
