Top sprinter Dutee Chand tested positive and was suspended for using a prohibited substance on Wednesday, January 18. Dutee was handed a provisional suspension after testing positive. The prohibited substances found in Dutee’s samples are SARS S4 Andarine, O Dephenylandarine, SARMS (ENBOSARM) (OSTARINE), and LIGANDROL Metabolite. 

The prohibited substance Dutee tested positive for is Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs). It is part of therapeutic compounds and has similar anabolic properties to anabolic steroids. But this substance has reduced androgenic (producing male characteristics) properties.

According to the WADA website’s list of prohibited substances, these banned substances have the potential to be misused by athletes for performance enhancement in sports due to their anabolic properties. The substances also have the ability to stimulate androgen receptors in muscle and bone, leading to bone and muscle growth.
