Star Indian sprinter Hima Das has been temporarily suspended by the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) for three instances of failing to provide her whereabouts in a 12-month period, as per sources.
A 23-year-old runner from Assam won’t be on the Hangzhou Asian Games team because of an injury she got this year.
A person from the Indian team said that a woman made three mistakes in one year, so she has been temporarily suspended by the NADA. They asked to remain anonymous.
Hima, who has left the national camp, could be suspended for up to two years, but if her fault is minor, the suspension can be reduced to one year.
Hima won second place in the 400m race at the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games. She was also on the teams that won gold and silver medals in the women’s 4x400m and mixed 4x400m relay races in Jakarta.
According to the rules of World Athletics Anti-Doping (WADA), if a person fails to file their whereabouts three times within a year, it is considered a violation of the anti-doping rules.
We do not know if Hima’s failure to show up is because she forgot to file something or if she missed the test.
Athletes in the Registered Testing Pool (RTP) have to give their complete address for where they stay overnight, the name and complete address of each place where they train, work, or do other regular activities, and the usual times they do each activity.
RTP athletes also need to choose a specific 60-minute time and place every day for testing.
If you don’t follow the rules about telling us where you are and getting tested, it will count as a failure. Hima has been dealing with a problem in her lower back for the past few years.
The coach of Indian athletics, Radhakrishnan Nair, said before a Grand Prix event in Bengaluru, Hima had injured her hamstring in April. She has been receiving medical investigation and treatment for it.
Hima missed the Federation Cup in Ranchi in May and the National Inter-State Championship in June in Bhubaneswar. That was the reason. Both events were important for selecting athletes for the Asian Games.
Last month, a race walker named Bhawna Jat withdrew from the World Athletics Championships in Hungary because she missed three location check-ins. She was temporarily banned by the NADA.
Seema Bisla, a wrestler who participated in the Tokyo Olympics and won a bronze medal in the 2021 Asian Championships, has been given a one-year ban by the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel (ADDP) of the NADA. This is because she failed to provide accurate information about her whereabouts.
The NADA gave a notice to Vinesh Phogat in July for not giving information about her location. This was the first time in a year that she did not do this. Vinesh Phogat has won many medals in World Championships and a gold medal in Asian Championships.
