Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Mihir Vasavda | New Delhi | Updated: January 17 2017 9:42 am Top News Seventy three Indian athletes were caught doping in 2016 the lowest figure in five years as per the data compiled by the National Anti Doping Agency (NADA) The number of offenders has come down drastically from 2015 when 120 sportspersons were guilty of consuming performance-enhancing drugs which was the highest-ever figure in a calendar year At the same time the number of athletes sanctioned for doping violations last year (53) compared to the previous one has nearly doubled with the NADA hearing panel handing out punishments to 104 culprits Yet it may not be enough for India to fall out of the top-three in the World Anti Doping Agency’s (WADA’s) annual report which will be released later this year In the last couple of years India has been ranked third by WADA in the list of countries with maximum dope violations In 2013 the report for which was released in 2015 India was behind Russia and Turkey while according to the figures for 2014 – made available last year – Indian athletes trailed their Russian and Italian counterparts The list of dope cheats in India has been expanding ever since the relay quartet was exposed in 2011 In 2012 which was an Olympic year like 2016 119 positive tests were recorded The number reduced to 96 and 95 in 2013 and 2014 respectively before the spike in 2015 One of the reasons for the sharp reduction last year is NADA’s change in approach towards the testing process Instead of randomly collecting athletes’ urine or blood samples the agency has put more emphasis on target testing over the last 12 months its director general Navin Agarwal said Prescribed under the WADA code target testing is considered to be the most crucial aspect in out-of-competition testing Last year it helped the NADA in catching three leading Rio-bound athletes – shot putter Inderjit Singh sprinter Dharamvir Singh and wrestler Narsingh Yadav “There is a lot of intelligence gathering now We are collecting ground reports coordinating with federations and Sports Authority of India where the athletes train and also monitoring their past results” Agarwal an IPS officer said “We are not doing random unplanned tests Our target group has increased” But the change in approach has also resulted in a decline in the samples tested A few federation officials – mainly from athletics and weightlifting the two disciplines with highest cases – have expressed their disappointment with NADA’s new testing policy In 2016 athletics accounted for maximum positive cases (23) followed by powerlifting (15) and weightlifting (13) Kabaddi which is fast growing in popularity had 10 cases of failed dope tests During its national championships in the last week of December Indian Weightlifting Federation vice president Sahdev Yadav said it ‘defied logic’ that NADA collected samples of only eight players out of the 300-odd participants Till 2015 he claimed the dope officers would collect ‘more than 60 samples’ Athletics Federation of India secretary CK Valson too was surprised when no anti-doping officer was present when high-jumper Tejaswin Shankar created a national record at the junior national championships in November The record could not be immediately ratified as an athlete has to clear a dope test for that to happen NADA did not provide the figures of the samples it has collected in 2016 In 2014 and 2015 they collected around 4300 samples but it is believed that the number has come down drastically last year “There may have been a decrease in the number of samples we collected but not everyone has to be tested” Agarwal said “The incidents have come down because we have invested a lot time in awareness programmes Our primary objective is to educate the athletes As deterrence testing is also required which we are doing in a planned way” In terms of percentage 354 percent of the total samples collected by NADA returned positive which is its highest-ever detection rate In 2014 280 percent of the samples tested were positive while in 2015 it was 268 percent NADA’s detection rate is highest among anti-doping agencies who have tested more than 2500 samples But its process often hit the roadblock during hearings which resulted in a low sanction rate Agarwal said increasing the detection rate improving the sanction rate and creating an awareness programme were his three key targets when he took over just before the Olympics last year “The high sanction rate shows that cases are fought effectively during the hearings” he said “But it will still take us two more years to fall out of the top five in the doping offences list globally A lot of work still needs to be done to achieve that” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsNew Delhi:A fair amount of his time has been lost to injuries but an unruffled Indian shuttler HS Prannoy says he knows how to bounce back and can already sense that something big is around the corner for him Ever since bursting on to the scene with a silver medal at the 2010 Youth Olympics Prannoy has been often left on the sidelines due to injuries affecting his training and thereby his progress File image of India’s HS Prannoy Twitter/@PRANNOYHSPRI He suffered a knee injury in 2011 just before the nationals then again in 2012 which was followed by a back injury in 2012 which took more than half a year to heal He reached the finals at the Tata Open the next year A series of semifinals at Bitburger Syed Modi International Macau and a final at Vietnam was followed by a maiden Grand Prix Gold win at Indonesia in 2014 Another injury-marred year followed but he still managed to reach a career-best world ranking of 12 He recovered to win the 2016 Swiss Open but again sustained a toe injury at the Singapore Open and subsequently missed the Thomas Cup He was in rampaging form at the Premier Badminton League this year but injuries to his knee and toe once again came back to haunt him Asked if he is playing the best badminton of his career now Prannoy said: "Best I am not sure I believe I have a lot of capability and I can play at a much better level Of course there have been restrictions on me since I had a lot of injuries So I can’t do some specific training due to those injuries" Prannoy had to face criticism for not being consistent and one renowned coach even went on to say that "he will never be able to play singles as he was slow and he should shift to doubles" "People may criticise saying that I have such a good game but I’ve not been able to be consistent I feel they need to understand that there are so many injuries that we suffer which they don’t know about and each time to come back train and reach top 20 is not easy" he said "Sometimes you get demotivated as to why so many injuries are happening but that is how it is some have a lot of injuries and some have less Look at Sameer he too had a lot of injuries and he would have been a much better player Injuries take away a lot of time" he added Prannoy who clinched the 2014 Indonesia Open Grand Prix Gold said he sometimes suffers from self-doubt during the first round of a tournament "For me the first round is really important I always play a bit half-heartedly in the first round and doubt myself if I will be able to control the shuttle" he said "Once I crack the first round if I am getting into the zone and really feel good about the conditions then I feel it could be my day After I cross the pre-quarters I get better so that’s how my game goes" he added The 2016 Swiss Open Grand Prix Gold champion said after losing to Chen Long thrice he doubted if he would ever be able to beat the Chinese "When I played him for first time it was really tough and I thought I want to beat this guy and when I met at Singapore he beat me 19-21 in the decider Next week I played him at China Open he again beat me and I thought it would never happen" he said "Indonesia also had slow conditions and it was a 76 minute match So over there to believe myself and Chen Long was playing well and to beat him was a good feeling Lee Chong Wei was ordinary that day He was better in the second game" Prannoy said he really felt confident about his fitness when he was training ahead of the Indonesia Open "The confidence that fitness gives is completely different I felt that after I left Malaysia and Singapore midway and I was training and trying not to get injured I played at the ABC in China and again was back to training It was the only time when I was feeling my body is good and I was raring to go but that feeling doesn’t happen all the time" "Others don’t need to worry about injuries they can just concentrate on things on court But I am happy with the way things are going now I am happy the way I come back after each injury and I might not have won a tournament but I always believe something big will happen and when things do not go my way I am patient enough to hang in there" he added Asked how does he prepare during back-to-back tournaments Prannoy said: "We don’t do anything new during the tournament It is all about polishing what you have you have to ensure that endurance doesn’t go down" "We keep trying new shots so that if required you can use them I have so many new shots in my game but I might not use them always and the thing is you might forget if you don’t practice So you have to keep doing it in practice" Talking about his trademark backhand smash he said: "Back home with my dad I used to work on these strokes on forehand and backhand I used to think why my dad makes me do that but now I understand: "There was one player in Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram) who used to play an extraordinary backhand I was lucky enough to play against him and he helped me learn that" Written by Seema Chishti | Published: November 16 2011 2:58 am
