COLDEPORTES 2017 FCC vs Julio Alejandro Torres Castañeda

In July 2017 the Colombian Cycling Federation (FCC) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the cyclist Julio Alejandro Torres Castañeda after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Oxandrolone.

After notification the Athlete admitted the violation, waived his right for a hearing and accepted the sanction. In addition he gave substantial assistance to the FCC regarding the person who provided the substance to him. With evidence of the Athlete's communications with this person the FCC could open disciplinary proceedings against this supplier.

The Disciplinary Commission finds that the presence of a prohibited substance has been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that the Athlete has committed an anti-doping rule violation. Further the Commission considers that the Athlete had admitted the violation and provided substantial assistance to the FCC.

Therefore the FCC Disciplinary Commission decides on 6 July 2018 to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 14 July 2017.
