On 30 September 2019 the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel of India (ADDPI) decided to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the minor weightlifter Tamanna Singal after her sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Metenolone.
Hereafter the Athlete appealed the ADDAPI decision with the Anti-Doping Appeal Panel of India and requested for a reduced sanction.
The Appeal Panel finds that the presence of a prohibited substance had been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that she committed an anti-doping rule violation.
The Appeal Panel established that the Athlete acknowledged the use of protein drinks and that her coach had administered injections before the competitions while she failed to mention this on the Doping Control Form.
Since there are no grounds for a reduced sanction the Appeal Panel decides on 13 March 2020 to dismiss the Athlete's appeal and to uphold the decision of 30 September 2019.
