Swiss Sprinter Wilson Fails Doping Test, Suspended From Olympics 2

 

Swiss sprinter Alex Wilson has been suspended from the Olympic Games after failing a medicine check, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) stated Wednesday.

The 30-year-old Jamaica-born sprinter examined optimistic for the banned steroid trenbolone in an out-of-competition check on March 15.

Wilson had initially challenged the check outcome, arguing that the drug was contained in contaminated beef he ate at a Jamaican restaurant within the United States. He was provisionally suspended in March.

However, a Swiss Olympic disciplinary panel lifted his suspension in early July.

The World Anti-Doping Agency and Athletics Integrity Unit appealed that call to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which on Wednesday upheld the preliminary suspension.

“Today’s ruling is the right outcome and demonstrates a proper application of the rules,” stated AIU chief Brett Clothier.

“This case reflects the AIU’s commitment to protecting the interests of clean athletes and ensuring a level-playing field in Tokyo.”

Wilson made headlines on July 18 after showing to clock a blistering 9.84sec for the 100m at a gathering within the United States, however the time has not been ratified amid doubts about its veracity.
