JJIF 2017 JJIF vs Laurence Fouillat (2)
July 7, 2017
In March 2017 the Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the French Athlete Laurence Fouilat after his sample, collected in June 2015, tested positive for the prohibited substance Heptaminol.
After notification the Athlete failed to respond. However the French Federation for Judo, Jujitsu, Kendo and Associated Disciplines (FFJDA) reported in May 2017 that the addressed FFJDA sports officials were not aware of the Notification and therefore it was not forwarded to the Athlete. Further the FFJDA reported that the Athlete had applied for a retrospective TUE for Heptaminol which was denied by the French Anti-Doping Agency (AFDL) in January 2016.
The JJIF established that the Notification by email was validly submitted to the FFJDA sports officals without indication that this Notification was not delivered. Also the JJIF deems that the Athlete’s TUE application is an admission of the violation and an acceptance of the presence of the prohibited substance in his system.
Considering the evidence in this case the JJIF finds that the anti-doping rule violation was intentional and that the delays in the proceedings were not attributed to the Athlete. Therefore the JJIF decides on 23 May 2017 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 7 June 2015.
