Ismail, the country’s fastest man, was banned for a year

The country’s fastest man Mohammad Ismail has been banned for one year by the Bangladesh Athletics Federation. From October 2, the ban on Ismail’s participation in all domestic and international competitions will remain in effect for the next one year.

Three athletes were initially selected from Bangladesh in athletics for the latest Tokyo Olympics. Zaheer Raihan was on the list with the fastest man Mohammad Ismail and woman Shirin Akter running 400 meters.

In the end, the federation finally nominated Zahir. But at that time Ismail raised questions about this selection process. And this is why the sword of punishment has fallen on Ismail.

Abdur Rakib, general secretary of the Bangladesh Athletics Federation, confirmed the matter today, saying, “Ismail ignored the decision of the federation and sent a letter to the Bangladesh Olympic Association. Angered by his omission, he spoke to various media outlets. People in the country and abroad have come to know about this incident through print and electronic media. This has tarnished the image of the federation. He was first asked to show cause for this. A five-member inquiry committee then decided to ban him for a year.

However, Ismail can appeal to reduce the punishment. “I have received a letter from the Bangladesh Navy regarding this,” said Ismail, a Bangladesh Navy athlete. I’m sorry to hear that. My organization will write to the federation for a solution. ‘

In the last Bangladesh Games held in April, Ismail became the fastest man again. He took part in an international competition in Iran after becoming the fastest man four times in a row. But Ismail was outraged by the Athletics Federation’s decision not to attend the Tokyo Olympics, saying at the time, “The Olympics were not selected according to due process. I have been wronged. ‘
