2-time Commonwealth Games champion Sanjita Chanu has been banned for 4 years by the NADA for failing a dope test in 2022, as per PTI.
Sanjita failed a test for an anabolic steroid called Drostanolone Metabolite.
It is on WADA’s prohibited list.
It took place at the National Games in Gujarat.
IWF president Sahdev Yadav confirmed the development.
“Yes, she has been handed a four-year ban by NADA,” he told PTI.
This is a huge setback for Sanjita, who will be stripped of the National Games silver medal as a result of the positive test.
Sanjita could not be reached for her comment.
