Demonising Justin Gatlin
13th September 2015
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) today acknowledged the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport’s Appeal Division to confirm the decision by Baseball Australia to impose a four year ban on athlete Aaron Sloan for the presence and use of prohibited substances. The substances D-amphetamine and D-methamphetamine were detected in a sample ASADA collected in-competition from Mr Sloan, after a Canberra Calvary match in Sydney on 20 January 2017.
Under the World Anti-Doping Agency Code Prohibited List, D-amphetamine and D-methamphetamine, commonly known as ice, are classified as stimulants and are prohibited in-competition. Generally, stimulants act directly on the central nervous system to speed up parts of the brain and body. They can increase alertness and reduce fatigue in athletes.
Mr Sloan is ineligible to participate in any sports that have adopted a World Anti-Doping Code compliant anti-doping policy until 26 April 2021. He is also not permitted to compete in a non-Signatory professional league or Event organised by a non-Signatory event organisation.
