TJD-AD 2019-055 Disciplinary Decision - Football

In May 2019 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the football player after her sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Cannabis in a concentration above the WADA threshold (1012 ng/mL).

When the case was referred to the Brazilian Sports Justice Anti-Doping Tribunal (TJD-AD) ABCD already assumed that the violation was not intentional, occurred out-of-competition and recreational while the she voluntarily had accepted a provisional suspension.

The Rapporteur finds that the presence of the prohibited substance has been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that she committed an anti-doping rule violation.

The Rapporteur deems that the violation was not intentional, that the Athlete acted with No Significant Fault or Negligence and cooperated with the proceedings. Meanwhile her club had also terminated her contract.

Therefore the TJD-AD Panel decides on 25 November 2019 to impose a 6 month period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the sample collection, i.e. on 22 May 2019.
