Aswini Akkunji, the disgraced athlete involved in the latest doping scandal, believes consumption of food supplements supplied to her and other athletes by athletics coach, Yuri Ogorodnik, would have been the reason for the failed dope test.

Akkunji remarked she is innocent as far as consumption of performance enhancing drugs is concerned.

The coach, Ogorodnik, already has denied his involvement with supplying steroids to the athletes. “I only brought medals for India, not drugs,” he claimed.
