FINA issues 2yr ban to Turkmen swimmer

The Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA) has issued a two-year ban to Turkmen swimmer Hemra Nurmyradov, after he tested positive to a number of different substances in December 2014. Nurmyradov, holder of five national records in Turkmenistan, tested positive for Nandrolone, a Class S1.1A Exogenous Anabolic Agent; 17beta-hydroxymethyl, 17alpha-methyl-18-norandrost-1,4,13-triene-3-one, a Class S1.1A Exogenous Anabolic Agent; and 17-epistanozolol-N-glucuronide, a Class S1.1A Exogenous Anabolic Agent (the Prohibited Substances).

‘In addition, the GC/C/IRMS result for Testosterone (T) and at least one of the Adiols (5a-Adiol and/or (5bAdiol) is consistent with exogenous origin’, read a FINA statement. ‘The GC/C/IRMS result for 5a-androstane-3a, 17b-diol (5a Adiol) and 5b-androstane–3a, 17b-diol (5b Adiol) is also consistent with exogenous origin. The FINA Doping Panel decided according to the FINA DC Rule 10.2 to impose on the athlete a period of two (2) years’ ineligibility, starting on 3 December 2014 and ending at the conclusion of the 3 December 2016 for his first anti-doping rule violation.’
