    Excerpts:

    Tuesday, January 28, 2014 - Text by Gayle Alleyne | BWF

    Korean badminton players, Kim Ki Jung and Lee Yong Dae, have each received a one-year sanction for violating the requirements relating to filing whereabouts information and resulting missed tests under the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations (Section 2.4).

    Their period of ineligibility is from 23 January 2014 to midnight on 23 January 2015, during which time the players cannot participate in any capacity in a competition or activity as defined under Section 10.10.1 of the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations – Status during Ineligibility.

    ...Due to such lack of diligent efforts, the panel has recommended that the BWF should fine Badminton Korea Association (BWF Anti-Doping Regulation 12.1 and 12.2.3). Given this recommendation, the BWF has initiated a process to decide on any additional disciplinary sanction against the Badminton Korea Association.

    Kim and Lee have the right to appeal (Clause 13.2.1 of BWF Anti-Doping Regulations) to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland, at latest midnight KL time on 17 February, 2014.

    Even though seems excessive, I suppose BWF and especially WADA wants to make an example of them to serve as warning to others.

    Especially since those failures to catch dopers in the cycling world in the past decade due to them evading and taking advantage of loopholes in the system.

    It's the rules. The should all know the rules. KBA should know the rules. The fact they have missed several doping appointments only goes to show KBA is not taking this seriously. Sorry, no excuses.

    yah, these rules are there and were there for long... and it is reported that they missed not once, but 3 times!!! the players are victims of KBA's poor management and lack of respect of the rules!!!

    I think this shoddy, careless attitude shines a bad light on badminton. To be viewed as professional, you have to act professional.

    Why they missed 3 times? may be they have something to hide ? They have destroyed their own career, no one to blame except themselves. If KBA was the culprit, KBA should take responsibility and resign and this will clarify that the players are innocent party.

    Welcome to BadmintonCentral! :)

    All pro players know about the doping tests and the procedures. For any player to skip 3 times in a row means that (a) he is avoiding the tests because there is some hanky-panky, or (b) his Association has instructed him, (which is also a suspicious thing) or (c) he is not interested in playing any more, or (d) he thinks he is bigger than the game and the BWF.

    Rules are meant to be followed. If the rules are not followed, then a punishment is given. The purpose of a punishment (or penalty) is to not only punish the person who breaks the rules with a "sentence" but to make sure that the "sentence" is strong enough to act as a deterrent to the person in the future, and also to other people who are thinking about breaking the rules.

    A rule is followed better if the punishment or penalty is stronger. For example, if the penalty for breaking the anti-doping rules is $5000 then every player in the top 10 ranking can afford to be doping, laughing and paying the fine! When their career is on the line (with bans for 1 or 2 or more years) they will be very, very careful about what they do. This is good for the integrity of the sport.

    all@ ya I think this incident caused by WADA and BKA. when WADA came to korea national training center 3 times, there is no LYD and KKJ because they are following national and international turnament. it seems WADA didn't see players' schedule. and for BKA, they forgot to give reason why LYD and KKJ didn't following the dopping test

    You cannot blame the WADA for going to the training center in search of LYD.
    They went there because LYD (or the BKA) told them that he would be there.
    And if he wasn't there at that time, who is to blame for it? The WADA or LYD?


    For clarity, allow me to summarise the process:


    1. The BKA submits to the WADA a list of players for the anti-doping program.
    This list, which usually includes the top players, is called the 'registered list'.


    2. The player (or the BKA) must update a database (called ADAMS) with their personal particulars.

    The most important part is the 'whereabouts information'.

    This is a list of work and residential locations (with contact information) where the player will be on each day of the next three months.
    Further, this information must also reveal where he will be on each day during any one hour of his choice (between 6am and 11pm). This has to be specific ("visiting a spa" will not do, but "at the Golden Mile Spa at 9pm" is fine).
    And, of course, he has to be where he state he will be.


    3. Based on this secure, restricted-access database, anti-doping officials will plan a test.
    If the test is at any random time, they will call up the player and inform him that they are coming over.
    It's the player's responsibility to provide the officials access to the location (even if it is a military base).
    Alternatively, the officials may also require his presence at a nearby testing venue.
    If so, he player needs to present himself within a reasonable amount of time (say, for driving over to take the test).
    And, finally, if the officials decide to conduct the test during that specific one hour chosen by the player, they simply turn up without any pre-arrival call.


    Three 'whereabouts failures' within a span of 18 months makes a player liable for penalties.
    In short, Lee Yong Dae and Kim Ki Jung weren't available for samples collection on those three occasions in the last one-and-a-half years when the officials came looking for them at those locations where the players said each time they would be.


    PS: By the way, 'whereabouts information' can be updated even right before the period begins. So, claiming that "it was a last-minute change of schedule or plan" will not be a useful defence in an appeal against the ban.
