TJD-AD 2021-014 Disciplinary Decision - Football
May 14, 2021

On 14 May 2021 the TJD-AD decided to impose a 2 year period of ineligibility on the football player after his A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance Ostarine.

In First Instance the TJD-AD accepted that the postive test result was caused by contaminated supplements the Athlete had used although the Athlete had acted with a degree of negligence.

Herafter the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) appealed the TJD-AD decision with the TJD-AD Appeal Tribunal. ABCD requested the Appeal Tribunal for a sanction of 4 years and contended that the Athlete failed to demonstrate how the prohibited substance had entered his system.

ABCD asserted that the Athlete had not mentioned his supplements on the Doping Control Form and that the second batch of supplements in question were inadmissable for analysis because they were were delivered unsealed and were compounded after the Doping Control in August 2019. Also after 2 months the Athlete had not kept the empty supplement vials of the first batch.

The Appeal Tribunal agrees that under the Rules the Athlete failed to demonstrate that the violation was not intentional.
Therefore the TJD-AD Appeal Tribunal decides on 14 September 2021 to reform the Appealed Decision and to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete.
