Anti Doping

4 November 2010

Following an appeal which was upheld, British shotputter Rachel Wallader has been given a reduced ban of four months after methylhexaneamine was found to be present in a urine sample provided on 1 May 2010. The period of ineligibility ran from 5 June to midnight on 4 October this year.

UK Anti-Doping has today issued a warning to athletes and players to be extra vigilant when using supplements as Wallader, the first UK athlete to test positive for the prohibited substance, received a ban following similar recent cases in Australia and India.

Informed-Sport evaluates supplement manufacturers for their process integrity and screens supplements and ingredients for the presence of prohibited substances. More information is available at www.informed-sport.com
