In 2018 NADO Flanders reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Dutch kickboxer after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Cannabis.
After notification the Athlete failed to attend the hearing of the NADO Flanders Disciplinary Commission. In this case NADO Flanders deemed that the violation was not intentional.
The Disciplinary Commission finds that the presence of the prohibited substance has been established in the Athlete’s sample and accordingly that he committed an anti-doping rule violation.
Therefore the NADO Flanders Disciplinary Commission decides on 26 March 2019 to impose a fine and a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the decision.
Fees and expenses for this Commission shall be borne partially by the Athlete.
