U-23 champion sprinter Taranjeet Kaur fails dope test

The
20-year-old
Delhi
sprinter
has
been
one
of
the
country’s
best
performing
youngsters
in
2021.
She
won
gold
in
100m
and
200m
races
in
the
National
U-23
Championships
from
September
27-29
here,
clocking
11.54secs
and
23.57secs

her
personal
best

respectively.

Just
a
week
before
that,
she
won
100m
gold
in
the
National
Open
Championships
with
a
personal
best
time
of
11.50secs
as
well
as
200m
silver
(23.64secs)
though
many
top
athletes
skipped
the
meet
as
it
was
held
after
the
Tokyo
Olympics
towards
the
end
of
the
season.

“Yes,
Taranjeet
Kaur
failed
an
in-competition
test
conducted
by
the
NADA,”
a
source
privy
to
the
development
told
PTI
on
condition
of
anonymity.

The
name
and
nature
of
the
banned
drug
as-well-as
the
competition
during
which
the
dope
sample
was
taken
could
not
be
ascertained.
The
in-competition
test
could
have
been
taken
either
during
the
National
U-23
Championships
or
the
National
Open
Championships,
both
held
in
September.

If
Kaur
is
found
guilty
of
doping
after
her
case
is
heard
by
the
NADA
Disciplinary
Panel,
she
faces
the
prospect
of
getting
banned
for
up
to
four
years

the
maximum
ban
period
of
first
time
dope
offenders.
