New Delhi : World record holder Indian javelin throw para athlete Sandeep Chaudhary may face difficulties after not joining the dope test last week. Sandeep did not meet in his room after the team of foreign officials arrived for the dope test at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium last week. An officer of the Paralympic Committee of India (PCI) gave this information. The Jakarta 2018 Asian Para Games javelin throwing champion Chaudhary and two other javelin throwing athletes were participating in the Olympic Games preparatory camp. A PCI official told IANS, “When a team from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) arrived at his room at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium to take a sample for a dope test, he was not present in his room. He missed the dope test and it could go against him in WADA records. “
The test was to take place according to the whereabouts of WADA, according to which the athletes provide their places to the visiting officials so that they can take samples for the test which is outside the competition. An official aware of the case said that Chaudhary had left the stadium hostel for essential work in his family. The officer said, “His father is unwell and he went to see him. But he probably did not attribute this reason to Wada as his whereabouts. ”This is Chaudhary’s first ‘crime’. According to WADA’s Anti-Doping Violation Rules, he may face a four-year ban if he does not appear in the dope test thrice in 12 months. However, he has not failed a dope test in a single competition so far.
