In August 2017 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the armwrestler after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Metandienone.
After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete filed a statement in his defence and he was heard for the Brazilian Sports Justice Anti-Doping Tribunal (TJD-AD). His request to lift the provisional suspension was dismissed.
The Rapporteur finds that the presence of a prohibited substance has been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that he committed an anti-doping rule violation.
The Rapporteur deems that there were no grounds for a reduced sanction and considers that there had been substantial delays in the proceedings not attributed to the Athlete.
Therefore the TJD-AD Decides on 28 February 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 10 June 2017.
