New Delhi: Wrestling a dope allegation just before the Rio Olympics 2016, the elite quadrennial extravaganza scheduled in Rio from August 5, Narsingh Yadav spoke exclusively to NewsX on his stand over the entire controversy.
Yadav said that he had shared his side of the story with the panel and that he expects justice in the matter.
“I have shared all the information with the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) and the panel. I hope my arguments are considered,” said the wrestler who was scheduled to represent India in the 74-kg category.
He added, “I have nothing more to say. All I want is justice.”
Narsingh’s chances of participating in the upcoming Rio Games came under a cloud last Sunday when he returned a positive result for a dope test conducted by the NADA on June 25.
The 26-year-old’s ‘B’ sample also tested positive for a banned substance, jeopardising his chances of competing in what will be his second Summer Olympic Games.
Following this, the Mumbai-based grappler, who was selected to represent the country in the men’s 74kg freestyle category ahead of two-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar, was handed a provisional suspension.
