UKAD 2023 UKAD vs Harry Tyson-Wilson

In May 2022 United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) was informed by the police that the rugby player Harry Tyson-Wilson in March 2019 had purchased online the prohibited substance Methandienone.

Thereupon in April 2023 UKAD reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Athlete for the possession and use of the prohibited substance. Following notification the Athlete timely admitted the violation, waived his right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by UKAD.

In view of the principle of lex mitior and the stipulations in the 2021 ADR UKAD determines that the Athlete shall receive a 1 year reduction for his timely admission of the anti-doping rule violations and his acceptance of the sanction.

Therefore UKAD decides on 26 October 2023 to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 12 April 2023.
