Anti-Doping Rule Violation of Russian Powerlifter

(lifePR) (Bonn, ) The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) today announced an anti-doping rule violation that occurred during an out-of-competition test in Aleksin, Russia, on 30 November 2009.

Following analysis of a urine sample taken during the doping control, Russian Powerlifter Sergey Sychev returned an adverse analytical finding of Oxandrolone and its metabolite Epioxandrolone, a substance included in the current Prohibited List (Class S1A). No satisfactory explanation was given in respect of the presence of the substance. There was no applicable TUE granted for the aforementioned substance nor was there an apparent departure from applicable standards that undermined the validity of the Adverse Analytical Finding.

In accordance with the IPC Anti-Doping Code (10.2), Mr. Sychev had a two years ineligibility period imposed upon him, starting 30 November 2009.

In addition and in accordance with the IPC Anti-Doping Code (Article 9 and 10.1), all individual results obtained from 30 November 2009 onwards were disqualified including the forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.

As a signatory of the World Anti-Doping Code (WADC), the IPC remains committed to a doping free sporting environment at all levels. The IPC, together with the International Federations and the National Paralympic Committees, established the IPC Anti-Doping Code (latest version November 2009) to prevent in the spirit of fair play, doping in sport for athletes with a disability and in conformity with the general principles of the World Anti-Doping Code.
