13th September 2015
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) today acknowledged the decision of the Australian Football League to impose a 12-month ban on athlete Brayden Crossley for the presence of a metabolite of a prohibited substance. Mr Crossley returned an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) from an in-competition doping control test on 25 May 2019.
His sample was analysed at the Australian Sports Drug Testing Laboratory, part of the National Measurement Institute, which detected the presence of Benzoylecgonine (a metabolite of Cocaine). The AFL imposed a 12-month ban on Mr Crossley commencing on 28 June 2019.
Mr Crossley is ineligible to participate in any sports that have adopted a World Anti-Doping Code compliant anti-doping policy until 28 June 2020. He is also not permitted to compete in a non-signatory professional league, or event organised by a non-signatory International or National level event organisation.
