India’s CWG gold medalist Sanjita Chanu fails doping test

Two-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist Sanjita Chanu was slapped with a provisional suspension by the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) after she tested positive for anabolic steroid, testosterone. In all, five weightlifters were handed provisional suspensions for anti-doping rule violations. If confirmed, Sanjita might be stripped off her 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medal and could face a four-year ban. However, there is no clarity as to whether or not she tested positive for the banned drug at the Games in Gold Coast or some other international competition.
