other Updated: Oct 14, 2010 01:27 IST

The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) has termed Indian athlete Rani Yadav’s positive dope test for a banned steroid as “unfortunate.”

Yadav, who finished sixth in 1 hour, 42 minutes, 54 seconds in the 20km walk held on Oct 9, tested positive for prohibited anabolic agent 19-norandrosterone and the result was made official on Wednesday. “It is indeed very unfortunate that an Indian athlete has tested positive for the banned substance during the Commonwealth Games,” said NADA director-general Rahul Bhatnagart.
