Mumbai: Olympic bronze medallist boxer Vijender Singh on Wednesday threw his weight behind the eight Indian athletes who recently tested positive for taking banned substances in one of the worst doping scandals that hit the country.
Insisting that doping might not have been deliberately done by the athletes, Vijender said, "It happens by mistake. It is wrong and should not happen in sports. But I'm with the athletes."
Vijender also said that he is aware of how hard working these athletes are.
