UKAD 2019 UKAD vs Sean Goodfellow

In January 2019 the United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rugby player Sean Goodfellow for evading sample collection, or without compelling justification, refused or failed to submit to sample collection.

Here UKAD reported that in August 2018 at his home the Athlete refused to provide a sample because he was not registered to play rugby in the season 2019/2020, he had to get to his work and had insufficient time to take part in the sample collection. However UKAD established that the Athlete indeed was registered as a player with his club in Scotland and accordingly under the Rules subjected to Out of Competition Sample Collection when requested.

After notification the Athlete filed a statement in his defence and he was heard for the National Anti-Doping Panel. The Athlete admitted the violation, accepted the provisional suspension and the imposed sanction.

Therefore the National Anti-Doping Panel decides on 26 April 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 2 January 2019.
