A homeopathy doctor in Kurunegala has allegedly given the performance enhancing drug to Sri Lanka boxer Manju Wanniarachchi, stating that it was a vitamin B injection. Wanniarachchi, who won the men’s 56kg bantamweight gold medal at the recent Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India was tested positive for performance enhancing drug, according to the Games officials, who have conveyed the result to the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of Sri Lanka last week.
A urine sample ‘A’ of Wanniarachchi, taken during the Games, has shown a positive result for Nandralone, an anabolic steroid which has been included in the banned list of performance enhancing drugs by the world anti-doping body - WADA.
The WADA has already informed Sri Lanka’s NOC about the positive urine sample test of the Sri Lankan boxer who won a boxing gold medal for Sri Lanka after 72 years.
