Regardless of establishing that the dietary supplements he claimed he had consumed contained the banned substance for which he had examined constructive, javelin thrower Shivpal Singh couldn’t keep away from a four-year suspension.
Shivpal, the quantity two ranked Indian javelin thrower who competed within the Tokyo Olympics, had examined constructive in an out-of-competition check on September 26, 2021. An Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel (ADDP) imposed the four-year suspension from the provisional suspension date of October 21, 2021 on August 16, 2022.
