HIGHLIGHTS

  • Dhanalakshmi tested positive for a banned steroid in a dope test
  • Dhanalakshmi was named to the CWG team for the 100m and the 4x100m relay team
  • Aishwarya’s dope sample has also returned a positive result

Top sprinter S Dhanalakshmi has reportedly been ruled out of the upcoming Commonwealth Games after failing a dope test, while national record holder triple jumper Aishwarya Babu has also tested positive for a banned substance.

Dhanalakshmi, who was named to the 36-member Indian athletics team for the Birmingham CWG, tested positive for a banned steroid in a dope test conducted abroad by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) of the World Athletics.

“Dhanalakshmi tested positive in a dope test conducted by AIU. She will not go to Birmingham CWG,” a top source privy to the development told PTI on condition of anonymity.

Dhanalakshmi was named to the CWG team for the 100m and the 4x100m relay team along with the likes of Dutee Chand, Hima Das and Srabani Nanda. She was also named in the Indian team for the ongoing World Championships in Eugene, USA, but failed to make it to the showpiece, ostensibly due to visa problems.

Dhanalakshmi had recorded a personal best time of 22.89 seconds to win 200m gold at the Qosanov Memorial Athletics Meet on June 26. She had become only the third Indian woman to run sub-23s after national record holder Saraswati Saha (22.82s) and Hima Das (22.88s).

The 24-year-old Aishwarya’s dope sample, taken by NADA officials during the National Inter-State Athletics Championships in Chennai last month, has also returned a positive result.

“Triple jumper Aishwarya Babu’s sample, taken during the National Inter-State Championships, has returned positive,” the source said.

Aishwarya had smashed the triple jump national record with a stunning effort of 14.14m to emerge the undisputed star of the National Inter-State Senior Athletics Championships (June 10-14) in Chennai.
