According to the National Dope Testing Laboratory (NDTL), New Delhi, the ongoing Kabaddi World Cup has earned the dubious distinction of being the most dope-tainted sporting event.

About 25% of the total samples have turned out positive at the NDTL.

Doping was most common in contact sports, including kabaddi. “However, the main reason for the high doping percentage is that kabaddi is an unregulated sport and there is low level of awareness among players and coaches,” Dr Beotra said.

The test conducted by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was part of the pre-tournament drug testing of the players.

Indian Sports Director Pragati Singh expressed some concern on the result of the tests. “Definitely it’s a matter of concern. Even as a player it’s a matter of concern. We want the medal with respect. We don’t want medal like this,” he said.
