Indian athlete fails dope test

2010-10-13 07:36

New Delhi - The Commonwealth Games Federation says an unnamed Indian track and field athlete has tested positive for the banned steroid nandrolone.

The athlete is the third to be caught for doping at the games. Two Nigerian runners were found to be positive for the banned stimulant Methylhexaneamine, with Osayomi Oludamola being stripped of her gold medal in the women's 100-meter race. Hurdler Samuel Okon also tested positive.

Commonwealth Games Federation president Mike Fennell says he cannot yet name the athlete because he is not sure the person has been notified of the positive result.

He says "all we can tell you is it is in the sport of athletics and the country is India."
