UKAD 2021 UKAD vs Jamie Acton

In April 2021 the United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rugby player Jamie Acton after reanalysis of his sample, provided in December 2014, revealed the presence of the prohibited substance GHRP-6. After notification a provisional suspension was ordered.

At first the Athlete stated that he was retired from rugby since April 2019, yet he failed to provide an explanation for the positive test result. Hereafter in July 2021 the Athlete admitted the violation, waived his right for a hearing and accepted the sanction proposed by UKAD.

UKAD deems that the Athlete had committed one single first anti-doping rule violation pursuant to the 2009 ADR without grounds for a reduced sanction.

Therefore UKAD decides on 27 Decemer 2021 to impose a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 30 April 2021.
