KUALA LUMPUR, March 11 (Bernama) -- Almost 70 per cent of the 178 athletes participating in the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast had undergone doping tests.
Anti-Doping Agency of Malaysia (Adamas) head, Nishel Kumar announced that the agency was expected to complete the process of collecting urine samples from national athletes in a few more days.
He said the tests which began earlier this year would focus on several high-risk sports such as weightlifting, cycling, badminton and diving.
"For example, last year, we have doping cases in diving and hockey and due to the history of taking banned substances, we need to focus on the two sports.
"All athletes gave their cooperation when the doping tests carried out and we have also obtained the cooperation of National Sports Council and the National Sports Institute to ensure the exercise proceeded smoothly," Nishel told Bernama recently.....
