Indian sprinter banned

Indian sprinter Sheoran Nirmla has been banned for four years for doping and stripped of two titles from the 2017 Asian Championships. The Athletics Integrity Unit, which manages track and field doping cases, says Nirmla tested positive for the steroids drostanolone and metenolone at a competition in India in June 2018. Nirmla “accepted the charge, did not request a hearing and was ready to accept the consequences”, the AIU said. The 24-year-old Nirmla’s ban was backdated to take effect on June 29, 2018. Her results from August 2016 to November 2018 were scrapped. She won gold in the 400 meters and 4x400 relay at the 2017 Asian Championships in India.
