World Athletics 2022 WA vs Dhanalakshmi Sekar

In July 2022 the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) on behalf of World Athletics has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Indian Athlete Dhanalakshmi Sekar after her sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Metandienone.

After notification the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived her right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by the AIU. The Athlete didn't file a statement in her defence.

Because the Athlete signed and submitted the Admission of Anti-Doping Rule Violation and Acceptance of Consequences Form she received a 1 year reduction from the AIU.

Therefore the AIU decides on 22 July 2022 to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 11 July 2022.
