CWG gold-lifter Punam suspended for indiscipline
New Delhi: Commonwealth gold medallist Punam Yadav has been provisionally suspended by the Indian Weightlifting Federation (IWF) for indiscipline, and barred from attending the national camp at the Netaji Subhash National Institute of Sports in Patiala.
Punam, who won gold in the 69kg weight category at last month’s Gold Coast CWG, had left the camp twice without permission.
The suspension notice was issued on April 26, 2018; but before that, she was given a show-cause notice on April 18 for leaving the camp “despite being categorically told not to leave the camp to keep in line with the discipline and decorum of the national camp.”
Punam’s suspension has cast doubts over her selection for the Asian Games, to be held in Jakarta-Palembang from August 18.
