Wrestler Sumit Malik fails dope test: Wrestler Sumit Malik, who has been ticketed for Tokyo Olympics, fails dope test, provisionally suspended


New Delhi
Malik has suffered a major setback before the Tokyo Olympics. Olympic ticket winner Sumit has been provisionally suspended after failing a dope test during the recent qualifiers in Bulgaria. A few weeks before the start of the Tokyo Games, this is a major embarrassment for the country. This is the second consecutive Olympics that a doping case has been found a few days before the start of the Games. Earlier, a few weeks before the 2016 Rio Olympics, Narsingh Pancham Yadav also failed a doping test and was banned
for four years. Commonwealth Games (2018) gold medalist Malik had qualified for the Tokyo Olympics in the 125kg category in the Bulgaria event, which was the last chance for wrestlers to earn a quota. After this incident, the 28-year-old wrestler’s dream of participating in the Olympics, starting from July 23, almost came to an end. A Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) source said, “UWW (United World Wrestling) informed the Wrestling Federation of India yesterday that Sumit has failed the dope test. Now he has to give his ‘B’ sample on June 10. Malik is battling a knee injury. He suffered this injury during the national camp before the start of the Olympic qualifiers. He participated in the Asian Qualifiers in Almaty in April but failed to secure the quota. In the World Olympic Qualifiers held in Sofia in May, however, Malik earned a quota by reaching the finals. However, he did not enter the ring for the final match due to injury. Before the Olympics, Malik did not go on a practice trip to Poland organized by the WFI for Tokyo quota holders to fully recover his injured knee. The source said, “He must have taken something unknowingly. He was taking some ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of his injured knee and it may have contained some banned substances. But these wrestlers should have been careful, they are aware of the risk of taking such drugs. If Malik’s B sample also comes positive, then he can be banned from the game. He has the right to challenge the suspension but it is clear that by the time a hearing is held and a decision comes, he will miss competing in the Olympics. India has secured eight quotas in wrestling at the Tokyo Olympics. These include four male wrestlers and as many female wrestlers.
