Boxing : WADA Challenge NADA’s Decision Over Sumit Sangwan Doping Case


Indian boxer Sumit Sangwan doping trouble are getting worse. Once the boxer is reunited with the panel of the National Anti-doping Agency(NADA), the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) has entered the scene. The Montreal bases agency has challenged NADA’s decision to let Sangwan be reprimanded.

“Yes, I can confirm that WADA has appealed this case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS),” a WADA spokesperson told Mirror. The CSA is a global body that resolves legal sports disputes through arbitration, and it is based in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The one year doping ban on former Asian silver boxer Sumit Sangwan was lifted after he proved that his intake of a banned substance was unintentional in a hearing conducted by National Anti Doping Agency (NADA).

Sangwan was banned for a year in December 2019 after testing positive for Acetazolamide, listed as a diuretic and masking agent under World Anti Doping Agency’s 2019 prohibited list.

As the Coronavirus pandemic hit the world hardly, so there is no certainty when the CAS will take up the case and how much time it will take to adjudicate but it takes hardly three and six months.
