In August 2020 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority reported an anti-doping rule violation against the parathlete swimmer after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Enobosarm (Ostarine) in a low concentration.

After notification a provisional suspension was ordered and the parathlete filed a statement in his defence. He denied the intentional use of the substance and assumed that the prescribed supplements from a compounding pharmacy were contaminated.

ABCD established that in the compounding pharmacy in question prior on the same day Ostarine was compounded for another person and thereupon the supplements were compounded for the Parathlete. As a result ABCD accepted that the violation was not intentional and that the source of the prohibited substance had been determined.

Further ABCD considered that the Parathlete was tested before without issues, that he acted carefully with his medications and that there had been delays in the proceedings not attributed to the Parathlete.

The TJD-AD Panel finds that the violation was not intentional and the result of a contaminated supplement. In view of the circumstances the Panel is divided on whether to impose a reduced sanction or only a warning on the Parathlete.

Finally by majority the TJD-AD decides on 6 May 2021 to impose a warning on the Parathlete.
