The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) has put down a four-year ban on American David McKienzie after finding two prohibited substances in a drug test during the Australian Beach Volleyball Tour Finals in Sydney.
Just like with Serbia’s Ana Antonijevic, Myriam Sylla’s clenbuterol charges were dropped due allegations of food contamination. Both players stayed at the same hotel and ate at the same restaurants on the same dates for the 2017 Grad Prix in Nanjing, China, a country with a history of clenbuterol meat contamination.
FIVB claims that Antonijevic’s clenbuterol contamination was food related. Is this good news for Italian Miriam Sylla, who also claimed that her clenbuterol positive test was due to eating contaminated food in China?
