Gender test done on Dutee
There had been whispers about Dutee Chand. And with the young girl coming up with stunning performances, the whispers just grew louder.
“Is she a girl?” was the question coaches frequently asked during meets. Now, just days before the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, the Sports Authority of India has conducted a gender verification test on the top junior sprinter who was a medallist at the recent Asian junior championship in Taipei.
“The test was taken last week. If the results are confirmed, then naturally, we will not send her. We have zero tolerance towards age fraud, doping and these things,” said SAI director-general Jiji Thomson. The results are expected in a day or two.
