Sprinter Dharambir Singh fails dope test: Reports

Indian 200 meter sprinter Dharambir Singh, who became the first Indian athlete to qualify for the Olympics after 36 years, has not traveled to Rio for the Games.

Reports suggest that he has reportedly been told to stay back after failing a drugs test conducted by NADA.

The final word on this is still awaited.

Dharambir Singh passed the Olympic mark of 20.50 secs with a timing of 20.45 secs at the Indian Grand Prix Athletics event in Bangalore in July 2016.
