Demonising Justin Gatlin
13th September 2015
The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has requested analysis of the B sample of its U23 national team goalkeeper, after being informed by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) that Ahmad Syihan Hazmi Mohamed has returned an adverse analytical finding (AAF) for a metabolite of methandienone. The FAM said that the A sample of Ahmad Syihan, 22, tested positive on 10 January during the AFC U23 Championship in Changshu, China.
On 6 February, the FAM received a letter from the AFC stating that Ahmad Syihan had been provisionally suspended for 60 days. The AFC is also waiting for the results of the B sample analysis, after which it will make a decision on whether to issue sanctions. Ahmad Syihan plays for Malaysian Super League club Negeri Sembilan, which has yet to issue a statement.
