NEW DELHI: India’s fastest woman athlete, Dutee Chand, who holds the national 100m record of a sensational 11.17s, which she recorded in 2021 (Indian Grand Prix 4 in Patiala), has been banned for four years for failing twin out-of-competition dope tests for selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) in December last year.

Dutee’s ban period will be effective from January 3, 2023.
During this period, “all the competitive results obtained by the athlete from the date of her sample collection, which was December 5, 2022, shall stand disqualified with all resulting consequences including forfeiture of medals, points and prizes,” the Anti Doping Disciplinary Panel (ADDP), headed by its chairperson Chaitanya Mahajan, said in its order passed on Thursday, a copy of which is with TOI.

The ADDP noted: “The athlete though has satisfied the panel with the source of ingestion of the prohibited substance but was not able to establish the no significant fault or negligence. In view of the totality of circumstances, the athlete has failed to establish that the said anti doping rule violation (ADRV) was unintentional due to following reasons: 1) The athlete instead of consulting a physician allegedly consulted her physiotherapist and consumed the medicines prescribed by her. 2) The athlete did not check the label with respect to the contents of the medicine consumed by her. 3) The athlete didn’t cross check the contents of the drugs with the latest published lists of prohibited substances by WADA.”
“The athlete has violated article 2.1 and 2.2 of the National Anti Doping Agency (NADA)… she is hereby sanctioned with an ineligibility period of four years as per article 10.2.1.1 of the NADA ADR 2021 beginning from the date of provisional suspension i.e. January 3, 2023. It shall be noted that the athlete has failed to satisfy the panel that the ADRV was non-intentional as per article 10.2.1.1 of the NADA ADR 2021,” the order added.
Dutee, a double silver medallist at the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games in 100m and 200m races, was tested twice on December 5 and 26, 2022 by Nada’s dope control officers in Bhubaneswar. While her first sample revealed the presence of anabolic agents andarine, ostarine and ligandrol, the second sample had traces of andarine and ostarine.
She had the option of going for her ‘B’ sample testing within a period of seven days from the date of receiving the adverse analytical finding (AAF) notice, but she didn’t opt for it, resulting in the imposition of the provisional suspension by Nada.
Athletics Federation of India (AFI) president, Adille Sumariwalla, had earlier told TOI that Dutee was neither a part of the national camp nor training under national coach N Ramesh in Hyderabad.
Dutee now has 21 days to file an appeal with the anti-doping appeal panel (ADAP) from the date of receipt of decision by the appealing party.
