KUALA LUMPUR: The Na­tional An­ti­Dop­ing Agency of Malaysia yes­ter­day said four ath­letes who com­peted in July’s Malaysia Games had tested pos­i­tive for banned sub­stances. Agency unit head Nishel Ku­mar said those in­volved were a weightlifter, boxer and two archers. “All were medal win­ners in the un­der21 cat­e­gory,” he told a press con­fer­ence.
