Indian sprinter Dutee Chand was handed a provisional suspension on Wednesday after testing positive for using prohibitive substances. Chand was tested positive for using Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs). The sprinter currently holds the national record in 100m sprint and along with Dhanalakshmi Sekar, Hima Das and Archana Suseendran, she is also part of the quartet who hold the 4*100m relay sprint national record. This ban will also mean that Chand will not be able to compete in the 2023 Asian Games in China which was postponed from 2022 due to the pandemic.
