Hima & Co.’s Silver at Asian Games Set to be Upgraded to Gold
The Indian Team of 4×400 mixed relay consisting Assam sprinter Hima Das, Mohammad Anas, Arokia Rajiv and MR Poovamma is in line to get the Asian Games gold in 4×400 mixed relay with Kemi Adekoya of Bahrain being handed a four-year ban by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) for failing a dope test.
The Indian team had won the silver in the event at the Asian Games in Jakarta last year. The ban on Adekoya, who was part of the gold winning team, means India’s silver is set to be upgraded.
The Indian Team had finished the race with a time of 3:15.71, while Bahrain won the gold medal by clocking 3:11.89.
The AIU said that Adekoya’s results between August 24, 2018 and November 26, 2018 will be disqualified. Adekoya had also won the 400m hurdles gold at the Asian Games with India’s Anu Raghavan finishing fourth. Raghavan is in line for the bronze.
