Asian Youth Silver medalist Javelin Thrower Rohit Yadav has been cleared to compete again in the international events after the anti-doping appeal panel (ADDP) dismissed National Anti-Doping Agency’s (NADA) appeal for “maximum sanction of four years and outright rejection of the plea”.

Appeal filed by NADA against the order of Anti Doping Disciplinary Panel giving sanction of 1 year ineligibility has been dismissed today by National Anti Doping Appeal panel.

NADA had sought enhanced sanction on junior javelin thrower from UP who was a silver medalist at last year’s Asian Youth Championship. According to NADA, Disciplinary Panel could not have given benefit of reduced sanction to the javelin thrower.

It was argued by Parth Goswami, advocate (appearing for the athlete) that the appeal filed by NADA was time barred since time prescribed to file appeal as per NADA Rules 2015 was only 21 days but the appeal was only filed by NADA in April 2018 whereas order was dated 28.082017.



It was argued by Parth Goswami that even on merits, the appeal deserved to be dismissed since Athlete had rightly been given benefit of provision of “No Sognificant Fault or Negligence” as a minor under the rules is not required to show as to how the prohibited substance entered his system.

The Appeal panel dismissed the appeal filed by NADA on grounds of limitation as well as on merits.

Rohit Yadav one year sanction ends tomorrow I.e on 22.05.2018. He is already preparing to compete in this year’s Youth Olympics, his first major competition after an year. He was touted as a real talent before he landed in this controversy and was handed an year ban.
