Court of Arbitration for Sport suspends wrestler Narsingh Yadav for four years
19 August 2016 Current Affairs: The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has banned wrestler Narsingh Yadav for four years following an appeal by World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on 18 August 2016.

The CAS also ruled to disqualify all the competitive results obtained by Narsingh from 25 June 2016. The CAS panel further stated that there was no evidence to accept his claim that his food/drink was spiked.

Yadav, whose suspension begins immediately, will not be able to participate at the Rio 2016 Olympics. He was scheduled to commence his campaign on 19 August 2016 against Zelimkhan Khadjiev of France in the 74 category.

In July 2016, Narsingh Yadav was tested positive for a banned substance steroid in an out-of-competition test conducted by the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA).

In the samples collected at the National camp in Sonepat, he was tested positive for the methandienone, which is a banned anabolic steroid.

However on 1 August 2016, he was given clean chit by NADA, which accepted his claim of sabotage.

Thereafter, WADA filed an urgent application before the CAS ad hoc Division to challenge the decision of NADA India to exonerate him following two positive anti-doping tests with methandienone on 25 June and 5 July 2016. WADA requested that a 4-year period of ineligibility be imposed on the athlete.
