In September 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 Hydrochlorothiazide.
After notification the Athlete filed a statement in his defence and he was heard for the Brazilian Sports Justice Anti-Doping Tribunal (TJD-AD).
ABCD established that the Athlete had mentioned several medication, including Hydrochlorothiazide, on the Doping Control Form, yet he had failed to apply for a TUE. The Athlete produced medical documentation about the prescribed medication he used as treatment for several conditions he suffered.
The Rapporteur finds that the presence of a prohibited substance had been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that he committed an anti-doping rule violation.
The Rapporteur concludes that the violation was not intentional and deems that the Athlete had failed to apply for a TUE. Further the Rapported considers that there had been delays in the proceedings not attributed to the Athlete.
Therefore the TJD-AD decides on 9 May 2018 to impose a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 15 July 2017.
