In September 2023 the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), on behalf on World Athletics, reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Lithuanian Athlete Vilmante Stašauskaitė after her sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Meldonium.

Following notification the Athlete timely admitted the violation, waived her right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by the AIU. The Parties went into a Case Resolution Agreement.

The amateur Athlete acknowledged with corroboration evidence that she had had purchased and used Meldonium without a prescription. She asserted that she was unaware that Meldonium was a prohibited substance.
