Ice-Hockey Player Banned Following Anti-Doping Rule Violation

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) has today confirmed that ice-hockey player Kyle Bochek has been suspended from all sport, for 18 months, following an anti-doping rule violation. Mr Bochek is a professional ice hockey player who was previosuly signed to Coventry Blaze of the British Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL).

An in-competition sample was collected from the Athlete on 30 November 2014 which was found to contain the specified stimulant methylhexaneamine on 12 December 2014. The athlete promptly admitted to the violation that his ingestion of methylhexaneamine arose through his use of a dietary supplement. He also provided evidence to prove that he did not intend to use the substance to enhance his performance.

As a result, the standard sanction of two years has been reduced to 18 months in accordance with the anti doping rules. The Athlete is banned from all competition from 18 December 2014 until 17 June 2016. The full written decision can be found under current rule violations.
