India's National Anti-Doping Agency To Test Olympic Boxer Accused Of Using Heroin
Published April 2, 2013
IMAGE TAINTED: IANS reported Singh's alleged involvement in drugs will hit his "iconic" image and hamper the growth of boxing in the country. Vijender "has been the face of Indian boxing ever since he won a historic Bronze" at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. 2010 Asian Games gold medallist boxer Vikas Krishan said, "He was a role model for some of the boxers. If the drug reports are true, it is bound to have a negative impact on the current and future boxers. It is going to have a bearing on India's image in the boxing world as well." India Amateur Boxing Federation "is reluctant to comment on the issue." IABF President Abhishek Matoria said, "We take the police's claims seriously, but it is still not the final word" (IANS, 4/1).
