Lawyers Claim Wrestler Narsingh Yadav Failed To Prove ‘Sabotage’ And May Face Ban

After days of suspense over wrestler Narsingh Yadav’s future, the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) on July 28 concluded their hearining and said final verdict would be given on July 30 or August 1.

Though it seems it might be bad news for Yadav, as NADA lawyers claim that Yadav has failed to “produce relevant evidence” needed to gain “remission.”

They further added that Narsingh could not prove that there has been a sabotage as he had been claiming.


He didn’t have enough proof which is needed to satisfy the WADA Code and thus he could be given punishment which can also lead to ban.

Though the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has backed Narsingh and his claim, sports minister Vijay Goel has made it clear that the government would abide by international rules to decide on Narsingh’s trip to Rio.

Now looking at above circumstances, it seems Yadav’s Olympic dream is all but over, especially looking at the fact that he failed his second Drug Test on July 5.
