World Rugby 2019 WR vs Leonid Kalinin

In February 2020 World Rugby (WR) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Russian rugby player Leonid Kalinin after his A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone.

After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete admitted the violation, waived his right for a hearing and didn't file a statement in his defence. The case was settled by the WR Independent Judicial Committee based on the filed submissions.

The Committee finds that presence of a prohibed substance has been established in the Athlete's samples and accordingly that he committed an anti-doping rule violation. Without grounds for a reduced sanction the Independent Judicial Committee decides on 10 June 2020 to impose a 4 year period of inelgibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 20 February 2020.
