Sports Integrity Briefs – 18 December 2021

• The US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has issued two athletes with public warnings for minor anti-doping rule violations (ADRVs). Ice hockey player Madeline Wethington failed to obtain a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for a prescribed medication containing spironolactone and returned an adverse analytical finding (AAF – or ‘positive test’) on 16 September. Because her AAF occurred out of competition, there were no results to disqualify. Paralympic athlete Trey Lampkin was sanctioned with a public waring for an ADRV involving hydrochlorothiazide. The judoka failed to obtain a TUE for a prescribed medication to treat a medical condition. He has now discontinued use of the medication and because his 15 June sample was collected out of competition, there are no results to disqualify.

• Former tennis player Albina Khabibulina has been sanctioned with a life ban from tennis for multiple breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP). The Uzbek, who last competed in 2019, was sanctioned by the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA). Her ban begins on 21 November 2021. 

• The Serbian gallop association (SKS) has sanctioned Trainer Bojan Sendekovic with a one year ban after two horses in his care returned adverse analytical findings (AAFs – or ‘positive tests’) for prohibited substances. The two horses, Alcatraz and Ankara, have been sanctioned with a one month ban. The sanction was announced by the Anti-Doping Agency of Serbia (ADAS).
