    India: Six athletes fail doping test

    Six Indian athletes - five women and one man - have been suspended after failing doping tests, officials say.

    They include two members of the 4X400m relay team that won the gold in last year's Commonwealth Games, Sini Jose and Mandeep Kaur.

    The thing in India is, lost of the athletes are not aware of such drugs. They don't even know many medicines could have banned substances. Most of them come from small towns and probably don't even know English to see what they are taking as medicines. They are totally dependent on coaches and support staff for anything. If someone is to be blamed, it's the support staff. Wonder if they too are illiterate.

    I don't believe, Indian are smart, world class athletes are smarter. Those athletes only have a good execute if they played game in China. Chinese meat have illegal substance. All Chinese athlethes don't allow eat out.
