When you dope, you cheat the system, you cheat the sport, and you deserve to be stripped off all your achievements during that drug transfused period. Ban on doping and suspension for athletes is important to tell the younger generation to never wander off into that dark world of performance enhancing drugs. Rohit, a Javelin Thrower, has today been stripped off his Asian Youth Medal, as he failed a doping test.
Rohit, who is a World School Games gold medalist, has been put under supervision after he tested positive for ‘stanozolol’, a banned substance.
“Rohit has tested positive for stanozolol and he has been placed under provisional suspension,” a top AFI official said.
“It is just ‘A’ sample right now and AFI got the results of the test on May 23 that is final day of the Asian Youth Athletics Championship in Bangkok. AFI didn’t know about the dope result and so he was sent,” he added.
The test was conducted during last month’s National Youth Championship in Hyderabad.
If further investigation proves the fact that Rohit had indeed taken performance enhancing drugs, his coach as well as him should be dealt with severely, in order to set an example in front of young Indian athletes, that doping will lead you nowhere.
