More bad news for India ahead of Comm Games

There's more bad news for organisers of next year's Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

It's been revealed that six Indian weightlifters failed drug tests in out-of-competition tests in September which could mean another international ban for the national federation, and no home lifters at the Games next October.

The International Weightlifting Federation will meet at the world championships in South Korea this week to determine a sanction for India.

Countries face up to a four-year ban if three or more lifters return positive drug tests in a calendar year.
