Dope scandal hits India on Wednesday, at the forefront of the finale of the Commonwealth Games on Wednesday, third case at the Delhi Games.

Rani Yadav, a participant of 20km walk, has tested positive for proscribed anabolic agent 19-Norandrosterone, the Commonwealth Games Federation confirmed on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old, who finished sixth in the competition Saturday, has conditionally been on the brink waiting hearing later today.

“I regret to say that we have another positive result,” said the Commonwealth Games Federation President Michael Fennell.

It is the third positive test of the Games, Nigerian sprinter and women’s 100m champion, Oludamola Osayomi, and her team-mate, the 110m hurdler Samuel Okon being the other two. Both tested affirmative for using the debarred stimulant Methylexaneamine.

OC secretary-general Lalit Bhanot depicted the positive dope test returned by the Indian athlete as “unfortunate” and said this embarrassment has come to pass regardless of everyone’s best stab to avoid it.

“It’s unfortunate. We tried our level best. Not just the federations, but NADA (National Anti Doping Agency) and government authorities are very serious about this issue. We have done out of competition as well in-competitions tests,” Bhanot said.

“It’s a difficult situation. It’s unfortunate. We are hosts, we took precautions. But it has happened unfortunately,” he added.

Osayomi has been stripped of her gold medal, and all her results in the Games nullified.
“We got the reports of the doping test late last (Tuesday) night, but the Indian chef-de-mission was informed in writing only this morning”  Fennell said.

The third dope case came into light on a day when 28 medals in Aquatics (2), Boxing (10), Cycling Road (2), Gymnastics Rhythmic (1), Hockey (1), Lawn Bowls (2), Shooting (4), Squash (3) and Table Tennis (2), Badminton (1) are to be decided.
