TJD-AD 2019-144 Appeal Decision - Football
February 15, 2019

In November 2017 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the football player after his A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance Anastrozole. After notification a provisional suspension was ordered and the Athlete filed a statement in his defence.

The Athlete denied the intentional use of the subsance and requested to lift the provisional suspension. He stated that the contaminated supplements he had used were the source of the prohibited substance. Analysis of these supplements in a laboratory revealed that 5 supplemenst produced in a compounding pharmacie were contaminated. Further the Athlete questioned the irregularities he had established in the chain of custody of his samples.

The TJD-AD Rapporteur finds that the presence of a prohibited substance had been established in the Athlete's samples and accordingly that he committed an anti-doping rule violation.

The Rapporteur accepts that the violation was not intentional and the result of a contaminated supplement produced in a compounding pharmacy. In view of the Athlete's conduct regarding the risks in using these compounding supplements the Rapporteur considered his degree of fault. ABCD was invited to investigate the irregularities regarding the chain of custody.

Therefore the TJD-AD decides on 22 May 2018 to impose a 6 month period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 21 February 2018.
