Leading parashuttler under fire for failings about whereabouts?


<p>Months before the Paralympics, one of the leading para-badminton players in India seems to have been suspended due to a whereabouts failure, in what may turn out to be another humiliating incident in the sport. It is known that the World Badminton Federation (BWF) brought the case before the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) in 2022 due to three whereabouts failures.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-478471″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-leading-parashuttler-under-fire-for-failings-about-whereabouts-newindianexpress-20-750×500.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com leading parashuttler under fire for failings about whereabouts newindianexpress 20″ width=”994″ height=”664″ title=”Leading parashuttler under fire for failings about whereabouts? 3″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-leading-parashuttler-under-fire-for-failings-about-whereabouts-newindianexpress-20-750×500.jpg 750w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-leading-parashuttler-under-fire-for-failings-about-whereabouts-newindianexpress-20-1024×683.jpg 1024w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-leading-parashuttler-under-fire-for-failings-about-whereabouts-newindianexpress-20-768×512.jpg 768w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-leading-parashuttler-under-fire-for-failings-about-whereabouts-newindianexpress-20.jpg 1200w” sizes=”(max-width: 994px) 100vw, 994px” /></p>
<p>The para-athlete, who won medals at the Paralympic Games, reportedly failed one filing attempt and skipped two tests in the last quarter of 2022. The BWF anti-doping regulation “2.4 Whereabouts Failures by an Athlete” states Any three (3) missed tests and/or filing failures by an athlete in a registered testing pool during a twelve (12) month period, as stipulated by the International Standard for Results Management.</p>
<p>The player was reportedly told by the BWF, who also registered the three as missing persons for a year and alerted the relevant authorities. “Athletes commit a missed test whereabouts failure if they are not available to be tested during their 60-minute designated testing window when a doping control officer comes to test them,” said the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).</p>
<p>Although there were signs that the World Badminton Federation (BWF) had won the case and that the CAS had confirmed the BWF’s decision to penalize the player, those with knowledge of the matter said that the player still had the option to appeal. The athlete was not placed under temporary suspension, and it seems that the BWF has requested a two-year punishment in accordance with its ADR.</p>
<p>This might be another high-profile whereabouts failure by a national athlete, after wrestler Pooja Dhanda and quarter-miler Hima Das, if punishments are sustained or declared.</p>
<p>India’s locations had previously been recognized as inadequate by WADA’s Operation Carousel. “These interviews revealed, inter alia, that the supervision of Whereabouts was inadequate, that there was a lack of sufficient testing, and that NADA (National Anti-Doping Agency’s) did not have an effective intelligence or investigative capability,” the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) had said in</p>
