UWW 2018 UWW vs Dmitrii Elkanov

In July 2018 the United World Wrestling (UWW) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the minor Athlete Dmitrii Elkanov after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone.

After notification a provisional suspension was ordered and the Athlete filed a statement in his defence. The UWW Anti-Doping Panel settled this case based on the written submissions of the parties.

The wrestler stated that he used a supplement called “Ecdysterone Ace” in 2017 for four weeks. He explained how he searched for information on the internet and how and where he bought the supplement.

The Panel holds that the substance found in the sample provided by the athlete was a metabolite of Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (Turinabol). However, according to a study on the excretion of ecdysterone in human urine, ecdysterone does not seem to produce turinabol as a metabolite, but two other different metabolites. The Panel concludes that the Athlete failed to establish how the substance entered his system.

Therefore the UWW Anti-doping panel decides on 20 August 2018 that the wrestler, Mr Dmitrii Elkanov:

I.) Is found to have committed an anti-doping rules violation, namely article 2.1 of the Rules;
II.) Is imposed a period of ineligibility of four (4) years, starting from 28 July 2018 until 27 July 2022 included.
III.) The results obtained in the World Championship Cadet are disqualified. With this disqualification, the ranking must be modified accordingly, and the place earned for the Youth Olympic Games 2018 is to be reallocated in accordance with the 2018 qualifying system for Wrestling.
IV.) The Russian Wrestling Federation is imposed a fine of 20’000 Swiss Francs.
