Doping row: Former athlete accuses sportspersons of using steroids openly

first_imgWhile the doping scandal is getting murkier day-by-day with the reports of involvement of players and sports officials coming out, former national swimming champion Reshma Millet on Tuesday said she has seen many athletes administering themselves performance enhancing drugs. Millet told Headlines Today that ahead of the 2002 Asian Games, she saw a group of power-lifters openly injecting each other steroids during a training camp in Delhi. “We were sharing a dormitory at Talkatora with other sports people, mainly power-lifters. One time I remember, I must be 16 or 17 years old, I saw five power-lifters injecting each other something. I was really terrified to see them,” Millet said. She added that the drug abuse was not limited to power-lifters, but she had seen many fellow swimmers also using banned drugs. “No one ever gets caught because… to give an instance… when we had Afro-Asian Games in Hyderabad. Every competitor used to go for dope test. Just before the dope test a couple of people were missing. There was one fellow swimmer who was actually hiding in the bathroom. She was terrified to come out and take the dope test,” Millet said. Going a step further, she added that officials in several sports federations have been promoting substance abuse among athletes. She said the federations back such activities and also help players in masking them. Millet’s allegations have the potential to open a can of worms and cause deep embarrassment to sports bodies battling India’s biggest doping scandal. Earlier, star Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal had also revealed that some Indian athletes had admitted to her about taking performance enhancing drugs.advertisementlast_img read more
