World Athletics 2019 WA vs Hassan Laqouahi

In November 2019 the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) of World Athletics (WA) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Moroccan Athlete Hassan Laqouahi after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Recombinant Erythropoietin (RhEPO).

After notification the Athlete indicated in his submission that he could not explain the positive test result. Hereafter the Athlete didn't respond to the WA communications.

Without the Athlete’s response the AIU deems that the Athlete under the Rules to have admitted the anti-doping rule violation, to have waived his right to be heard and to have accepted the consequences.

Therefore the AIU decides on 19 December 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the notification, i.e. 18 November 2019.
