TJD-AD 2018-111 Disciplinary Decision - Football

In September 2017 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the football player after his A and B sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Hydrochlorothiazide.

After notification a provisional suspension was ordered and the Athlete filed a statement in his defence. The Athlete denied the intentional use of the substance and could not explain how the substance entered his system. Also analysis of his supplements in a the Rio de Janeiro Lab revealed no prohibited substances.

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

The Rapporteur considers that the Athlete failed to demonstrate that the violation was not intentional nor grounds for a reduced sanction. Further the Rapporteur holds that there were substantial delays in the proceedings not attributed to the Athlete.

Therefore the TJD-AD decides on 20 November 2018 to impose a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 8 May 2017.
