The World Kabaddi Cup made headlines in sports magazines for reports that 13 of its players tested positive for anabolic steroids and stimulants.

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.
