Olympian discus thrower Kamalpreet Kaur has been provisionally suspended by Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) for testing positive for a banned substance.

The AIU updated the news on its website on Wednesday. Kamalpreet, who was tested on March 29, was suspended for the presence/use of prohibited substance stanozolol in her sample, a breach of the World Athletics anti-doping rules.

Kaur had made it to the Tokyo Olympics final, finishing sixth with a throw of 63.7m.
