ST 2019_08 DFSNZ vs Jason Anderson

In July 2019 Drug Free Sport New Zealand had reported an anti-doping rule violation against the powerlifter Jason Anderson after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Tamoxifen. After notification the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived his right to be heard, accepted the test result and a provisional suspension.

The Athlete admitted the violation and denied the intentional use of the substance. He explained that he had used it as treatment for his medical condition recommended by a friend. He was unaware that the substance was prohibited but he used it because he was concerned about his health. He stopped using it after approximately 10-14 days because of severe side effects.

Subsequently the Athlete had received a formal diagnosis for his medical condition by his physician and DFSNZ accepted that the violation was not intentional.

The parties in this case reached an agreement and filed a joint memorandum in relation to the sanction for approval into a decision of the Sports Tribunal of New Zealand.

Considering that the Athlete gave a prompt admission and that the violation was not intentional the Sports Tribunal of New Zealand decides therefore on 25 November 2019 to impose 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 13 May 2019.
