Anti-Doping Rule Violation: Tyronne White

Cycling South Africa reports that Tyronne White has been found guilty of an anti-doping rule violation after an in-competition test conducted on 30 April 2016 confirmed the presence of the Glucocorticoid, Dexamethasone.

The SAIDS Independent Doping Hearing Panel imposed a period of ineligibility of 18 months, commencing on 14 December 2016. Mr. White is therefore suspended and prohibited from competing and administering in the sport of Cycling as well as in any other sport in South Africa and Internationally from 14 December 2016 until 13 June 2018. This decision may be appealed by Mr. White, the UCI, WADA and SAIDS.

 

Cycling South Africa respects the independence of the SAIDS process and will respect the outcome. Cycling SA further reiterates its zero-tolerance approach to doping in sport and will continue working with SAIDS in the promotion of a drug-free sport via its awareness and extensive testing programmes.

Do you think if he gets away with it after an appeal it will be down to White privilege?

The fact that it takes 8 months for these clowns to find things, makes me take them far less seriously...

One would 'assume' they can name the meds given to him for the chunderi then??
which begs the question; whom should take responsibilty on this- the medics stocking meds thats on banned list; or should the riders sit and google each pills ingredients before popping them....

I think the process has to be so stringently followed that it does take time.

 

There are obviously a lot of procedures which need to be adhered to 100% otherwise the guilty bugger and his lawyers will find a loop hole and worm their way out through a technicality.

 

So, being thorough and doing it properly allows them to actually release this sort of news and pass sanction without legal lashbacks.

 

This is after all extremely damaging to the career of a pro cyclist and his sponsors.

Yes it is the athletes responsibility.

Patchelicious, Dec 28 2016 01:27

I feel sorry for SA athletes, considering that every positive test ever has been a result of a flawed system.

Baaisikilist, Dec 28 2016 01:28

Also, why does the race medical shed even have banned stuff to administer to competitors...? If your condition is bad enough to warrant requiring "the good stuff", then you should need to pull out of the race and declare requiring banned meds as the reason.

True.

Maybe they're stocking it for emergencies when athletes run out.

These guys are incredible specimens, racing and achieving some of their best results when desperately ill. Just imagine what they will achieve when able to race healthy.

FCH, Dec 28 2016 01:46

Thats my though exactly, ultimately; yes its the atheletes responsibility. But if its not life pr death treatment, then the meds should surely be vetted before being stocked.

Exactly!
