    Default NEWS : MALAYSIAN shuttler had tested positive for doping

    Malay Mail.

    DOPE SHOCKER!
    by RIZAL HASHIM

    MALAYSIAN badminton has been rocked with the shocking news a shuttler had tested positive for a banned substance in a recent tournament in Europe. It’s all hush-hush in the domestic fraternity but Mailsport learnt the B portion of the player’s urine sample is being re-tested.

    It is probably the first positive test involving a badminton player.

    The shuttler is not among those participating in the ongoing Malaysian Open at the KLBA Stadium.

    The player, who quit the BA of Malaysia (BAM) stable a few years ago, is ranked in the world’s top 20.

    He is currently attached full-time with a club.

    Besides winning a Grand Prix title, he also reached the last eight of a few other tournaments last year.

    BA of Malaysia (BAM) and Badminton World Federation (BWF) officials are keeping mum since the testing process is supposed to remain confidential in accordance with the procedures in the World Anti-Doping Code.

    When an athlete provides a urine sample, he or she divides it into A and B portions.

    The two bottles are sealed in the presence of the athlete, and a strict chain of protocol is followed to transport the samples to a lab.

    The A portion is tested, and if a positive finding is made, it is retested for confirmation.

    The retest is usually done by a different technician and on a different and generally more sophisticated instrument to rule out human error.

    If the A test is confirmed positive, the B portion of the sample is also tested.

    The result of the B sample is considered the final result, and it almost always confirms the result of the A sample.

    If the B sample is negative, however, the positive A result is thrown out.

    If the test confirms the result, the ramifications are plenty for the shuttler.

    It could spell the end of his career for under international rules, a two-year suspension is mandatory.

    He, however, is allowed the opportunity to exhaust all avenues to prove his innocence.

    While it could well be the first case involving a badminton player, athletes from football, athletics, weightlifting, sepak takraw and bodybuilding have had their fair share of doping offences in recent times.

    Wow this is pretty big news. But not really the first. Sigit was tested positive back in 1998. Maybe the first for Malaysia.

    he might as well just give out the name!

    and also, the info is not quite correctly. Sigit was banned for doping in the late 90's. i think in 1998.

    Can't be WCH, he isn't rank in the top 20. In the top 20 the Malaysian players are, Lee Chong Wei (2), Hafiz Hashim (10), Sairul Ayob (13), Roslin Hashim (16) and Lee Tseung Seng (20).

    Sometimes these things are dramatized beyond what they really by the media. The banned substance list is very long and ranges from the "hard" performance enhancing drugs to marijuana to substances found in flu medicine. We have no idea what aubstance was found in the player's urine sample. For all we know he might have been suffering from flu and took some medication for relief. Maybe we should reserve judgement until everything is on the table. On the other hand, if he was dumb enough to have smoked weed, which would have been counteractive his performance, he deserves it, if only for sheer stupidity.

    One other thing. Unfortunately once a person has been implied in such cases, he name and reputation are pretty much shot, innocent or not.

    P.S. I think Cooler got the player correct.

    yes, some 'off the shelf pain or cold medicine' can contain some ban substances that the player didn't know about.

    it is true that this happens. but it is also the responsibility of the player to make sure that they know what they are taking before taking it. otherwise everyone will go and take these drugs, gets the benefit, and then claim that they don't know.

    also, it doesn't help the player's cause when his normal achievement is at most quarterfinals for the whole year and suddenly he wins a star tournament and got tested positive.

    Wow, suffering from a Flu and still winning a major tournament!

    I remember when Chen Hong had to face Lin Dan in the finals at the Japan Open, he couldn't even finish the second game.

    Well I just hope that these kind of news doesn't hurt the Badminton Image.

    am i supposed to be reading between the lines there?

    i don't think so. the said player is not very famous and the said tournament won is not a major tournament. if someone really famous had won the WC, Olympics and subsequently tested positive for drugs, then the impact will be much worse.
