TJD-AD 2020-002 Disciplinary Decision - Basketball

In February 2020 the  Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the basketball player after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Stanozolol.

After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete filed a statement in his defence and failed to attend the hearing of the Brazilian Sports Justice Anti-Doping Tribunal (TJD-AD).

The Athlete admitted the violation, claiming ignorance and denied the intentional use of the substance. He stated that he had used the substance 6 months ago for only 2 weeks and had purchased it on the internet.

At that material time he asserted that he was not a registered Athlete, in between two sports contracts, suffering from personal problems and had used the substance out-of-competition.

The Rapporteur 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.

The Rapporteur deems that the Athlete had admitted the intentional use of the substance and that there are no mitigating circumstances. He claimed ignorance whereas the use of the substance is prohibited out-of-competition.

Therefore the TJD-AD Panel decides on 29 June 2020 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. 20 february 2020.
