AAA No. 74 190 00738 10 WTC vs Timothy Marr

In August 2010 the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Athlete Timothy Marr after his A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance Amphetamine. After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete filed a statement in his defence and he was heard for the Tribunal of the American Arbitration Association.

The Athlete denied the intentional use of the substance and explained with evidence that he ingested the substance 72 hours beforte the test. He stated that he consumed his friend's drink that contained prescribed Adderall while he was not present when the medication was poured by his friend into his drink.

Considering the evidence in this case the Arbitrator finds that the Athlete established No Significant Fault and how the substance entered his system without intention to enhance sport performance.
Therefore the AAA Tribunal decides on 22 February 2011 to impose a period of ineligibility on the Athlete to run from 13 August 2010 until the date of this Award.
