TJD-AD 2019-149 Disciplinary Decision - Football

In April 2018 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the football player after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Hydrochlorothiazide.

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).

The Athlete admitted the violation and explained that he had used the substance for weight loss.

The TJD-AD 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 under the Rules the violation was intentional and he considers that the Athlete had not mentioned the use of the substance on the Doping Control Form, nor had he applied for a TUE.

Therefore the TJD-AD decides on 22 February 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 23 January 2018.
