World Wrestling Federation nod for Narsingh Yadav to Rio

02narsingh1-1New Delhi: United World Wrestling Federation has cleared wrestler Narsingh Yadav’s participation in the Rio Olympics. The news was confirmed by the Wrestling Federation of India President Brij Bhushan Saran Singh.

The National Anti-Doping Association (NADA) on Monday gave clean chit to wrestler Narsingh Yadav in doping case and allowed him to participate in the Rio Olympics.

A panel of the NADA, reviewing Narsinghs case, said the wrestler is a victim of sabotage as there is no fault and negligence on his part.

There is no fault and negligence on Narsingh Yadavs part, he is a victim of sabotage done by a competitor, said NADA DG Naveen Agarwal while reading out the verdict.

We kept in mind that in the past, till June 2, none of his samples were positive. It was inconceivable that one-time ingestion would be of benefit. Therefore the panel is of the view that the one-time ingestion was not intentional, said Agarwal.
