3 Indian athletes test positive for doping


NEW DELHI (AP) -- India's National Anti-Doping Agency says three athletes have tested positive for using banned substances during two national level meets last month.

A NADA said statement Wednesday said that two athletes were caught during a national rowing championship in the southern city of Hyderabad. One of them tested positive for the stimulant methylhexaneamine and the other for the anabolic steroid nandrolone.

The third athlete tested positive for methylhexaneamine during a national taekwondo championship in New Delhi.

NADA has been testing athletes at most national championships including at school and college levels over the past few months.
