TN’s Gomathi Marimuthu banned for 4 years!

In 2019 Asia Championship, Tamil Nadu’s Gomathi Marimuthu made heads turn by winning the Gold Medal.

Sadly, the 31 years old athlete failed the dope test and will be returning title and she is also banned for four years, until May 2023.

She tested positive for anabolic steroid nandrolone at the 2019 Asian championships in April. The announcement on Friday came after her ‘B’ sample also returned positive for nandrolone.

It followed three more positive tests from samples taken in India in the previous month. Those test results were confirmed after she won the Asian title.

All of Gomathi’s competition results between March 18 and May 17, 2019 stand annulled and will be disqualified in all the races she participated in the timeframe.

She will be returning all the money she earned during this time.

She can now appeal the decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
