Whereabouts failure on account of glitch in application: Suspended race walker Bhawna

New Delhi, Aug 17 (PTI) Indian race walker Bhawna Jat on Thursday blamed her failure to fulfil NADA’s whereabouts conditions to glitches in the mobile application, through which she had to fill up the form, and subsequently losing her phone.

The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) has provisionally suspended Bhawna for failing to furnish the required whereabout details, forcing the national federation AFI to withdraw her from the World Championships in Budapest.

Bhawna had competed in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and is in the list of athletes for the Asian Games next month.

The 27-year-old gold medallist in the 20km race-walk event at the National Inter-State Championships in June, has been asked to return home from Budapest after Athletics Federation of India (AFI) received a notification from NADA regarding the athlete’s “whereabouts failure”.

The World Championships will commence on Saturday.
