BWF 2015 BWF vs Sudsaifon Yodpa

In January 2016 the ASEAN Para Sports Federation (APSF) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Thai paralympic Athlete Sudsaifon Yodpa after her A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance sibutramine.
After notification by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete filed a statement in her defence and she was heard for the BWF Hearing Panel.

The Athlete accepted the test results and stated that she had used a nutritional supplement purchased on the internet as treatment for constipation and believed this supplement was the source of the prohibited substance.
However in June 2016 the BWF was informed that analytical results showed that the substance sibutramine was not detected in this supplement.

The Hearing Panel concludes that the Athlete failed to establish how the prohibited substance entered her system and that her negligence is rather significant.
Therefore the BWF Hearing Panel decides on 6 September 2016 to impose a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 7 December 2015.
