In July 2015 the National Doping Control Commission of Chile (CNCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rower Nelson Martínez Hodde after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Furosemide.
After notification a provisional suspension was ordered and the Athlete was heard for the Disciplinary Panel of the Tribunal de Expertos en Dopaje (TED).
The Athlete admitted the violation and denied the intentional use of the substance. He explained that the substance was used to stay within the intended weight class.
The Panel 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.
Therefore the TED Disciplinary Panel decides on 26 November 2015 to impose 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 2 July 2015.
