During out-of-competition testing conducted by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) in March at the National Institute of Sport (NIS) in Patiala, the athlete’s urine sample was taken. The test results came back positive for the presence of “Stanozolal”, a prohibited steroid derived from testosterone and endowed with anabolic and androgenic properties.

Kamalpreet Kaur is now provisionally suspended from participating in any athletics event. This means that she will not be able to participate in the World Championships in Athletics (July 15-24), the Commonwealth Games (July 28-August 28) and the Asian Games (September 10-15).
