India has been listed third in the doping report for 2013 behind Russia and Turkey.
The report was released on June 15 by the World Anti-Doping Agency as around 91 athletes, including 20 women athletes from India were tested positive for banned substances.
Russia is on top of the list as 212 athletes were tested positive for banned substances while Turkey had 155 positive reports.
France is at number four with 90 positive reports.
India has 95 ADRVs, fourth in the WADA list behind Russia (225), Turkey (188) and France (108) if the four non-analytical Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) are taken into account. Russia had 13 non-analytical ADRVs, while the corresponding figures for Turkey and France were 33 and 18 respectively
Non-analytical ADRVs refer to cases that do not involve detection of a prohibited substance by a WADA-accredited laboratory but instances like failure to submit to a test, possession, use or trafficking of a prohibited substance following an investigation by athletes and support personnel.
In all, 1953 athletes across the globe committed anti-doping rule violations out of which 1687 were actually caught for using banned substances while 266 violated other rules (non-analytical ADRVs).
Among sports disciplines, track and field athletes lead the Indian dope cheats with 30 (28 sanctioned after testing positive with two of them committing non-analytical Anti-Doping Rule Violations) out of a global total of 280.
Weightlifting comes second with 19 from the discipline caught for doping with nine wrestlers committing Anti-Doping Rule violation. Other sports which contributed in the doping shame are powerlifters (8) and bodybuilding (8), judo (7), boxing (4), aquatics (2), cycling (2), kabaddi (2), cricket (1), football (1), taekwondo (1), volleyball (1).
