“Sumit Sangwan banned for 1 year with immediate effect for consuming the specified prohibited substance,” NADA DG Navin Agarwal posted on his Twitter handle.

Sangwan, who took part in the 2012 London Olympics, will not be able to participate in the Olympic qualifier trials.

Sangwan, whose ban starts from Thursday, tested positive for acetazolamide, which is listed as diuretics and masking agents under S5 of WADA’s 2019 Prohibited List.

“The Hearing Panel holds that since Athlete in the present case was negligent in consuming the specified prohibited substance without verifying its composition and elements and without disclosing same in the doping form, he is liable for sanctions under Article 10.5.1 for ineligibility period of 1 year,” the order stated.
