Ranchi: 59th National school athletic meet or drugs party? Jan 31, 2014, 04.00AM IST

By: Ajith K Joseph

The Birsa Munda Athletic Stadium looked like the site of a junkie convention from the 1970s, there were so many used syringes and empty drug bottles lying around. This pretty much summed up the state of affairs at the 59th national school athletic meet, which was held at the Ranchi sports facility on January 2014. While this doesn't mean every single competitor was using performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), it shows that there's little hope that the country's athletic standing is going to improve any time soon. It's also a clear indictment of the country's athletic administration as a corrupt establishment that exploits young men and women for reasons of self-aggrandisement..
