AAA 2021 No. 01 21 0018 0951 USADA vs Sabina Allen

8 Jun 2022

In June 2021 the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Athlete Sabina Allen after her A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substances LGD-4033 (Ligandrol) and Phentermine.

After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete filed a statement in her defence and she was heard for the American Arbitration Association Commercial Arbitration Tribunal.

The Athlete denied the intentional use of the substances and explained that before the competition she had used a smoothie and that she was unaware that her friend had included a Phentermine pill to give her energy.

The Athlete stated that she had used a Jetfuel supplement provided by a friend and claimed that this supplement was contaminatied with LGD-4033. Analysis of the Athlete's open Jetfuel supplement in the Salt Lake City Lab revealed extremely high levels of LGD-4033 in the capsules.

USADA contended that the Athlete had provided varied explanations for the positive result for Phentermine and failed to demonstrate that the her use of the product was unintentional.

USADA asserted that there are aggravating circumstances in this case because the Athlete fabricated a story to absolve her of liability for her Phentermine and LGD-4033 test results. She enlisted the assistance of Mr. B. to implement her fabricated scheme. Mr. B. used used different aliases and provided false statements to the investigators..

USADA argued that the Athlete's Jetfuel supplement showed signs of probable manual manipulation, not contamination through the manufacturing process. In the Lab extreme high levels of LGD-4033 were found in the tested capsules provided by the Athlete. Besides LGD-4033 the prohibited substances Ostarine and RAD140 were found in these capsules, yet these substances were not present in the Athlete's sample.

The Arbitrator finds that the presence of prohibited substances has been established in the Athlete's sample and accordighly that she committed an anti-doping rule violation. In view of the evidence in this case the Arbitrator concludes that the Athlete failed to establish that violation was not intentional.

While the uncertainty involving the individual or individuals participating in the investigation prevented the Athlete from meeting her burden of proof, and while the Arbitrator was highly suspicious of the numerous witnesses that had the same address and phone numbers, ultimately, the Arbitrator lacks adequate evidence that Mr. B was impersonating other individuals in the case, and as such, declines to find aggravating circumstances in this case.

Therefore the AAA Tribunal decides on 8 June 2022 to impose a 4 year period of inelgibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 24 June 2021.

  • FEI 2020 FEI vs Mohamed Talaat
    December 17, 2021


      On 17 December 2021 the Tribunal of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) decided to impose a fine and a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Qatari rider Bassem Mohammed after his A and B samples tested positive for the prohibited substance Cannabis in a concentration above the WADA threshold (2955 ng/mL).

      In first instance the FEI Tribunal concluded that the Athlete's explanation, that unknowing exposure to Cannabis during his residence in Morocco through sabotage had caused the positive test, is merely speculative as no corroborating evidence was ever produced during the proceedings.

      Hereafter the Athlete appealed the FEI Decision with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). CAS partially upheld the decisions of the FEI Tribunal, decided to reduce the imposed period of ineligibility and to backdate the suspension period.

      Therefore the Court of Arbitration for Sport decides on 2 June 2022 that:

      1. The appeal filed on 4 January 2022 by Mr Bassem Mohammed against the Federation Equestre lnternationale (FEI) with respect to the decision taken by the Tribunal of the FEI on 17 December 2021 is partially upheld.
      2. The Decision rendered by the Tribunal of the FEI on 17 December 2021 is confirmed save for the item 2) a), which is so amended:
        "2.) The Athlete shall incur:
        a.) a period of ineligibility of two (2) years. The period of ineligibility will be effective from 13 October 2019 until 12 October 2021. All competitive results achieved by the Athlete during the period of ineligibility are disqualified"
      3. The Award is pronounced without costs, except for the Court Office fee of CHF 1,000 (one thousand Swiss Francs) paid by Mr Bassem Mohammed, which is retained by the CAS.
      4. Each Party shall bear its own expenses incurred in connection with these arbitration proceedings.
      5. All other motions or prayers for relief are dismissed.

          In first instance the FEI Tribunal concluded that the Athlete's explanation, that unknowing exposure to Cannabis during his residence in Morocco through sabotage had caused the positive test, is merely speculative as no corroborating evidence was ever produced during the proceedings.
