India's athletics coach sacked after athletes fail doping tests
Jul 07 2011
Yuri Ogorodnik, from the Ukraine, trained six of party who provided positive doping samples.
On Monday (July 4th), two females were suspended after they tested positive for banned substances, while a further six stood down last week.
"We are removing Ogorodnik immediately and are also considering removing other foreign coaches. The athletes have disgraced the whole nation and it's very disturbing for us. Athletes will get their punishment in the form of suspensions, bans and losing their medals," said sports minister Ajay Maken.
According to officials, two of the athletes Ashwini Akkunji and Priyanka Panwar tested positive for anabolic steroids.
ML Dogra, Athletics Federation of India director, said that they will now be asked to produce B sample tests.
Last year, Indian walker Rani Yadav tested positive for anabolic agent 19-norandrosteone at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
