Sports Integrity Briefs – 26 June 2017

• Brazil’s CA River Plate has blamed adverse analytical findings (AAF) reported by two footballers on contaminated supplements. “The substance is a diuretic that we do not use”, said club doctor Pedro Hansing at a press conference. “I have sent our mediations to be analysed to find a source of supplement contamination”. The club said it had been notified by the Latin American football confederation (CONMEBOL) that Lucas Martínez Quatra and Camilo Mayada had reported AAFs for diuretics.

• The International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) has provisionally suspended Cade Clason, after the Supercross rider returned AAF for amphetamine from a sample collected on 29 April. Cason argues that his positive test was for Adderall, an amphetamine-based drug used in the US to combat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ‘The problem is my TUE never got properly approved’, he wrote on Instagram. ‘Something that I had no knowledge about until just finding out on Monday when I got the results of the tests’.

Kevin Moore has been sanctioned with a four-year ban, after the National Anti-Doping Organisation (NADO) appealed against a Malta Amateur Athletics Association (MAAA) decision to acquit the sprinter, reports the Times of Malta. Moore initially tested positive during the European Championships of the Small States in June 2016. His provisional suspension meant that he was ruled out of representing Malta at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Moore claimed that he was innocent and initially successfully argued that the procedure to collect his urine was flawed.
