In April 2019 the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rugby player Mhlanhla Mlondobozi after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Methyltestosterone.
After notification the Athlete waived his right for a hearing, accepted the test result, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by SAIDS.
SAIDS finds that the Athlete failed to establish that the violation was not intentional nor could he demonstrate that contaminated supplements were the source of the positive test.
Therefore SAIDS decides on 1 August 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 25 April 2019.
