UKAD 2023 UKAD vs Kaiden Carnell

In April 2023 the United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rugby player Kaiden Carnell after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Oxandrolone.

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 confirmed that he deliberately had used the substance and stated that he was unaware that was a prohibited substance.

UKAD deems that the Athlete's violation was intentional and determines that he shall receive a 1 year reduction for his timely admission of the anti-doping rule violation.

Therefore UKAD decides on 8 September 2023 to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 14 April 2023.
