This story is from India about a couple wrestlers being banned for steroid use.
Tainted wrestler Narsingh Yadav's former roommate Sandeep Tulsi Yadav, who had also failed the dope test last year, has been handed a four-year ban by the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel of NADA.
Days after Narsingh had failed his dope test last year ahead of the Rio Olympics, his sparring partner and roommate Sandeep also failed the test conducted by NADA.
The two wrestlers were roommates at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) Sonepat and both of them tested positive for methandienone, an anabolic steroid.
Narsingh was ousted from the Olympics last year and slapped with a four-year ban for flunking a dope test after Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) overturned the clean chit given to him by NADA.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) had appealed against NADA’s clean chit to Narsingh at the CAS, three days ahead of his scheduled opening bout at the Rio Games.
