COLDEPORTES 2018 FECODATLE vs Sandra Milena Lemos Rivas

In January 2018 the Colombian Athletics Federation (FECODATLE) has reported anti-doping rule violations against the Athlete Sandra Milena Lemos Rivas after her samples, provided in December 2017 and in March 2018, tested positive for the prohibited substance 19-norandrosterone (Nandrolone).

After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete filed a statement in her defence and she was heard for the FECODATLE Disciplinary Commission.

The Disciplinary Commission accepts the Athlete's explanation that the violation was not intentional and established how it entered her system during bodybuilding out-of-competition.

The Athlete acknowledged that she was seeking to improve her performances and had used Deca recommended by people from her bodybuilding gym. Before using she accepted their reassurances that the product was no doping.

Considering No Significant Fault or Negligence the Disciplinary Commission decides on 18 August 2018 to impose a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the first sample collection, i.e. 27 October 2017.
