Hockey players Abdul Manan and Ghazanfar Ali, weightlifters Haider Ali, Nooh Dastgir Butt, and Hanzala Dastgir, swimmers Haseeb Tariq, Bisma Khan, and Jehanara Nabi, judoka Shah Hussain, and para-athlete Anila Izzat Baig all had their samples taken.
The test results would be available in 15 to 20 days, according to Dr. Asad Abbas, the head doctor of the national contingent. According to prior reports, samples were obtained from two hockey players, swimmer Haseeb, and Anila as soon as they arrived in Birmingham.
According to earlier reports, samples were obtained from two hockey players, swimmer Haseeb, and Anila as soon as they arrived in Birmingham. It is significant to note that Pakistan has sent 103 participants, including para-athletes, to Birmingham to compete in 13 different sports.
However, none of the Pakistani athletes have been able to medal in the competition up to this far. Famous Pakistani weightlifter Talha Talib was disqualified from competing in the Commonwealth Games earlier in April after his doping test result proved positive.
