ITF 2019 ITF vs Camilla Emilia Maffei Bossi

In May 2019 the International Tennis Federation (ITF) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Brazilian tennis player Camilla Emilia Maffei Bossi (15) after her sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Enobosarm (Ostarine), a Selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs).

After notification the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived her right to be heard, accepted the test result, the provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by the ITF.
The Athlete denied the intentional use of the prohibited substance and asserted that the positive test was caused by her ingestion of a contaminated supplement prescribed by her physician and prepared by a reputable pharmacy in Sao Paolo.

The remaining capsules of the supplement in question were still in the possession of the Athlete and came from the same bottle as the capsules she had used in the days prior to the sample collection in March 2019. Analysis of these remaining capsules by the Montreal Lab revealed the presence of the prohibited substance in a concentration consistent with the prescribed use of these capsules by the Athlete.

The ITF accepts that the violation was not intentional and that the Athlete established No Significant Fault or Negligence since she demonstrated how the prohibited substance entered her system through the ingestion of capsules of a prescribed (contaminated) supplement. Further the ITF considers in this case the Athlete's youth, her lack of anti-doping education and that she gave a prompt admission.

Therefore the ITF decides on 11 November 2019 to impose a 6 month period of ineligibility starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. 27 March 2019. Since the Athlete has actually served more than half of her period of ineligibility in accordance with the Rules as from the date of the this decision the Athlete is no longer subject to a period of ineligibility or provisionally suspended.
