In February 2018 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) reported an anti-doping rule violation against the bodybuilder Refusal or failure to submit to sample collection during a competition in december 2017. After notification a provisional suspension was ordered.
The TJD-AD Rapporteur establishes that the Athlete had signed the notification, yet thereupon intentionally failed to submit to sample collection. Further the Athlete failed to demonstrate that the violation was not intentional, nor grounds for a reduced sanction.
Therefore the TJD-AD decides on 13 January 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 11 June 2018.
