An Indian track and field athlete has tested positive for a banned substance, and Commonwealth Games officials said that is was the third anti-doping violation of the event.
The athlete has not been named yet as the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has yet to receive confirmation that the competitor involved had been informed of the outcome of their test.
"As far as anti-doping is concerned, we have collected over 1,300 samples, and I regret to inform you that we have another positive result," CGF president Mike Fennell said.
"We can tell you that it is in the sport of athletics and the country is India."
The athlete tested positive to nandrolone, a steroid.
The two other positive tests here, Nigerian 110m hurdler Samuel Okon and Nigerian women's 100m gold medallist Osayemi Oludamola, were for stimulants.
