NADO Flanders reported in 2019 two anti-doping rule violations against the Athlete for use and possession after an imported parcel was intercepted by Customs and addressed to the Athlete containing the prohibited substance Testosterone. Hereafter the police conducted a search in the Athlete's residence where multiple prohibited substances were found: Boldenone, Drostanolone, Methandienone, Oxandrolone, Tamoxifen, Testosterone and Trenbolone.
After notification the Athlete was heard for the NADO Flanders Disciplinary Commission. Against the Police and at the hearing the Athlete admitted the purchase of the Testosterone and stated that the found substances were used for bodybuilding.
Considering the evidence in this case the Commission finds that the Athlete intentionally had committed the admitted anti-doping rule violations without grounds for a reduced sanction.
Therefore the NADO Flanders Disciplinary Commission decides on 28 January 2020 to impose a fine and a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the decision.
Fees and expenses for this Commission shall be borne by the Athlete.
