Indian wrestler Narsingh Yadav was given a clean chit by the National Anti-Doping Association (NADA) on August 1, allowing him to participate in the upcoming Rio Olympics.

 

While reviewing Singh’s doping case the NADA panel observed that the wrestler is a victim of sabotage and that there is no fault or negligence on his part.

“There is no fault and negligence on Narsingh Yadav’s part, he is a victim of sabotage done by a competitor.”


The NADA panel observed that until June 2, none of Singh’s samples were tested positive, and it was thus inconceivable that one-time use of the steroids he would have benefited him.

 

The panel thus concluded that Singh deserved to be given the benefit of article 10.4 of NADA’s anti-doping code and given another chance.

Though being cleared by NADA doesn’t clear the 74kg freestyle wrestler to participate in Rio, as he still needs to clear a fresh dope test and get clearances by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
