Coimbatore:  Probably for the first time in India, dope testing has been introduced in college sports, with Bharathiar University, Coimbatore conducting dope testing of all athletes taking part in the Inter collegiate Sports meet here.




This dope  testing is being conducted  by NADA (national  anti dope  testing  agency)   which  is recognized by the world  anti dope  testing  agency (WADA).

Mohammed Nizamuddin, Asian Games medal winner  and  Indian  coach for London Paralympics  2012 said in his 30 years of experience in sports, he had never seen  such an  initiative  taken   by  any  institution at the college level. "This  will create more   awareness about the pitfalls of doping among budding athletes", he added.
