Wednesday, 13 October 2010

CGF President Michael Fennell announced at a media conference this morning (October 13, 2010) that an Indian athlete had returned an adverse analytical finding.

Subsequently, the CGF has received confirmation from the Indian Chef de Mission, that the athlete has been duly notified of the result, as per the CGF Anti-Doping Standard (ADS) for the XIX Commonwealth Games.

The CGF can now confirm that the A sample of Ms Rani Yadav, a competitor in the women’s 20 kilometre road race on October 9, 2010, was found to contain 19-Norandrosterone, a prohibited Anabolic Agent under category S1 of the WADA List of Prohibited Substances and Methods.

Ms Yadav has been provisionally suspended from the Games and, in accordance with the ADS, the athlete will attend, or be represented, at a Provisional Hearing before the CGF Federation Court later today.
