The Boxing Federation of India (BFI) is all set to make use of the Coronavirus lockdown period to conduct online anti-doping classes to the boxers.

With nine Indian boxers qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics and the Asian Championship heading to India later this year, it is indeed a welcome move from the federation.

In a statement given to Times of India, BFI's executive director RK Sacheti noted that making the boxers aware of the banned substances is important since the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) keeps updating the list.

Last year, one of the top Indian prospects Neeraj had failed her dope test after testing positive for anabolic agent LGD-4033 (ligandrol). She was one of the eight boxers who were part of the Sports Ministry’s Target Olympic Podium (TOP) Scheme.

The main aim of the online classes would be to avoid such an occurrence in the future as it can put both the boxer and the federation under a lot of pressure.
