World Rugby 2019 WR vs José Ramon Piña

In August 2019 World Rugby (WR) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Venezuelan rugby player José Ramon Piña after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substances 19-norandrosterone (Nandrolone), Etiocholanolone and Testosterone including its adiols.

After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete filed a statement in his defence and the World Rugby Independent Judicial Committee rendered a decision based on the parties' written submissions. The Athlete admitted the violation and stated that he had intentionally used the substances to recover from an injury.

The Committee finds that the presence of the prohibited substances has been established and accordingly that he intentionally had committed the anti-doping rule violation.

Therefore the Judicial Committee decides on 16 November 2020 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provional suspension, i.e. on 13 August 2010.
