After history, it was a day of shame yesterday. Two Indian weightlifters, Sanamacha Chanu and Pratima Kumari, tested positive for drugs in out-of-competition tests. Pratima Kumari was mysteriously disappearing day before yesterday when she should have been taking part in the competition. The Indian contingent either denied knowing her whereabouts or said that she was not well. As usual, the problem cannot be completely blamed on the two sportspersons. The Indian Olympic Association will no doubt make it appear as though it is sincere about combating drugs in sport, especially weightlifting. There've been several instances of Indian weightlifters, mostly women, who've been banned for testing positive during drug tests.
