SAIDS 2020_02 SAIDS vs Ngoni Chidoma

In December 2019 the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rugby player Ngoni Chidoma after his A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance Testosterone.

After notification the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived his right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by SAIDS.

SAIDS deems that this is the Athlete's second violation and that he failed to establish how the prohibited substance entered his system. Further it considers that there were delays in the proceedings not attributed to the Athlete

Therefore SAIDS decides on 7 July 2019 to impose an 8 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 17 August 2019.
