UK Anti-Doping has today confirmed that a UK athlete has been provisionally suspended following an anti-doping rule violation. The suspension follows a test conducted as part of the organisation’s pre-Games testing programme in the countdown to the summer’s Olympic and Paralympic Games.
UK Anti-Doping Director of Legal Graham Arthur said: “We are progressing a case relating to a possible anti-doping rule violation. The matter is subject to confidentiality restrictions imposed by the Anti-Doping Rules, and as such we are unable to comment further.
“All violations of the World Anti-Doping Code are published on our website if confirmed, when sanctions have been agreed and all appeal windows are over.”http://www.ukad.org.uk/news/article/ath ... -violation
Is the term 'athlete' being used in a generic sense? There was a headline last week about an 'athlete' testing positive but it turned out to be a bobsleigher (of course he/she could also be an athlete). Are these connected?
