LAHORE: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-April 19th, 2022) Talha Talib, Pakistan's weightlifter, called his positive dope test result an "unintentional mistake" in a letter to the Pakistan Weightlifting Federation (PWF)
Talha who could not pass the dope test recently wrote a letter and said that he did it unknowingly.
Talha said, “he had no idea about the presence of prohibited substances in his body”, saying that he would “never even think about violating doping rules”.
The weightlifter said he had no prior knowledge and therefore he was sorry.
Talha won the first-ever medal for Pakistan in the World Weightlifting Championship, bagging bronze at Tashkent last year. He narrowly missed out on winning an Olympic medal for Pakistan at 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
