Sumit Malik, the 400 meter gold medal winner in the men’s 400 meter race in Lusofonia Games 2014 has been stripped off from his medal on 28 January 2014. He was stripped for violating anti-doping rules and illegally participating in the Lusofonia Games in lieu of a provisional suspension imposed on him by National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA). He was a gold medalist of the Lusofonia Games 400-meter event.

Sumit Malik was served a notice by NADA for violation of the anti-doping rules under the NADA’s Anti Doping Rules 2010. He participated in the Lusofonia Games 2014 in Goa by keeping the organising committee in dark. The organising committee was informed by NADA on 27 January 2014 and a copy was also sent to the Athletics Federation of India.

Earlier on 7 January 2014, NADA provisionally suspended Malik and debarred him from participating in any global or national event.
