A total of 203 Indian athletes (108 male and 105 female) have qualified for Birmingham 2022.

Players to miss Commonwealth Games 2022

Tajinderpal Singh Toor (Shot Put) – Sustained a groin injury at Chula Vista in the USA.

Neerja Chopra (Javelin Throw) – Sustained a groin injury at World Athletics Championship and is advised a month’s rest.

Dhanalaxmi Sekar (Sprinter) – Dope test – Dhanalakshmi’s dope sample contained an anabolic steroid.

Aishwarya Babu (High and triple jump) – Dope test – Ostarine, a type of drug called a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM), was found in Aishwarya’s samples taken on June 13 and 14 during the National Inter-State Championships in Chennai.

Aneesh Kumar (Para discus thrower) – Dope test – Tested positive for anabolic steroids

Geeta (Para-powerlifter) – Dope test – Tested positive for anabolic steroids

Women athlete, 4x100m relay member (undisclosed) – Dope Test – A member of the women’s 4x100m relay team is set to be withdrawn from the Indian squad after testing positive for a banned drug; the name of the athlete was not disclosed. The Indian women’s 4x100m relay is left with the last 4 players, if an injury happens to the remaining four members, somebody from other track events may have to be roped in, which, however, will affect the team’s performance.

With so many athletes dropping out due to doping tests, this is perhaps the worst year for Indian athletics after the 2011 scandal when six women quarter-milers were caught in the doping net.

My eagerness, interest and inclination towards sports has continuously been forging and fortifying my personality as a writer. My sincerity to it is strengthened by the strong foundations of my musical attribute.
