Indian para-athlete banned for cheating in Tokyo discus throw
09:22 hrs Indian para-athlete Vinod Kumar will not be allowed to compete for the next two years. He was accused of cheating in discus throw at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo last summer. The suspension was imposed by the disciplinary committee of the World Para Athletic Association.
Kumar, 41, competed in the F52 class, which is designed for athletes who can only throw from a wheelchair due to low muscle strength or limited range of motion. According to the audience, Kumar’s movements during the match clearly showed that he was competing in the wrong class. Kumar finished third, but his bronze throw was later declared invalid.
According to the Umbrella Association, deliberate deception was the reason for the disciplinary case. “The ranking system is very important to ensure fair competition and this case shows how committed the world para athletics is to maintaining the integrity of the sport,” said General Manager Christian Holts.
