In February 2023 the United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rugby player Ryan Snowdeny after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substances Clenbuterol and Enobosarm (Ostarine).
Following notification the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived his right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by UKAD. The Athlete acknowleded that he had used a supplement containing Clenbuterol to lose weight.
UKAD deems that the Athlete's violation was intentional and determines that he shall receive a 1 year reduction to the period of ineligibility for his timely admission of the anti-doping rule violation.
Therefore UKAD decides on 7 July 2023 to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 10 February 2023.
