New Delhi, Sep 14: One of the most successful women weightlifters in India, Sanamacha Chanu confronted life ban after her 'B' sample test chucked out as dope positive.

The 'A' sample of 31-year-old Chanu, who won  Arjun award in 2000, was taken during the trials for the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in Aug 2010 had tested positive for methylhexaneamine.

"Chanu's 'B' sample had also come out to be positive for methylhexaneamine. We have sent the notice to Chanu and Indian Weightlifting Federation," stated NADA officials, who conducted the dope test.
