In February 2019 the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the football player after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substances 1,3-Dimethylbutylamine (1,3-DMBA), Enobosarm (ostarine) and Ibutamoren.
The ABCD made several attempts to contact the Athlete in order to notifiy him. A provisional suspension was ordered and the case was referred to the Brazilian Sports Justice Anti-Doping Tribunal (TJD-AD).
The Rapporteur finds that the presence of multiple prohibited substances has been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that he had committed an anti-doping rule violation.
Without any response of the Athlete the Rapporteur deems that the Athlete failed to demonstrate that the violation was not intentional, nor grounds for a reduced sanction.
Therefore the TJD-AD Panel decides on 17 October 2019 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibiltiy on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 15 February 2019.
