    BWF suspends Yu Xiaohan

    Chinese player, Yu Xiaohan, has been provisionally suspended by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) due to an apparent anti-doping regulation violation

    The Provisional Suspension under Article 7.9.2 of the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations (linked here), means the athlete is barred temporarily from participation in any competition prior to the BWF Doping Hearing Panel’s decision.

    The world-governing body imposed this provisional suspension on 28 September due to an Adverse Analytical Finding of a sample taken at the 28th Summer Universiade in Gwangju (Korea) in July. The case was passed to the BWF by the International University Sports Federation (FISU) which declared a Doping Rule Violation.

    BWF has referred the matter to the BWF Doping Hearing Panel and a date in late January 2016 has been set for the hearing.

    In accordance with Article 14.3.1 of the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations, BWF is able to publicly identify the player involved in this matter.

    There will be no further comment from the BWF regarding this matter until the BWF Doping Hearing Panel makes its determination.

    She is very unlucky.
    She might have been using furosemide for a genuine medical problem.
    But the doping agency considers it as a drug capable of masking other 'doping' drugs!

    Furosemide is a well known drug to dilute urine. Any pro level athlete would know of it. And if anyone has to take it for any medical condition, there's always the therapeutic exemption form.

    From reading the Chinese articles,I gathered that Yu Xiaohan is a university student, in the first half of this year, she injured her elbow and underwent surgery and rested for a while.

    Three days before she set off for the Universiade in July, she was tested negative, cleared of any doping. It's speculated that she could have taken some traditional Chinese medicine prepared by her family out of concern for her injury without her knowledge of its content, but that's still under investigation.

    She herself remains positive and optimistic while awaiting the outcome of the investigation and the Doping Hearing Panel scheduled for January next year. Meanwhile, Yu Xiaohan has engaged a lawyer to handle her case.

    Anti-Doping Violation: Yu Xiaohan got seven months

    SEVEN MONTH SANCTION – ANTI-DOPING RULE VIOLATION


    Chinese player, Yu Xiaohan, has received a seven-month sanction for an anti-doping rule violation.

    This sanction, imposed by the BWF Doping Hearing Panel, has resulted from an Adverse Analytical Finding of Yu’s sample taken on 12 July, 2015, at the FISU 28th Summer Universiade in Gwangju, Korea. The sample collected at the 28th Summer Universiade contained Sibutramine, a Specified Substance prohibited “in competition”, the source of which was contained in a supplement that Yu had been taking.

    FISU determined an anti-doping rule violation and the athlete was disqualified. Her Women’s Doubles silver medal was reallocated. In the team event, China was disqualified and the team placings were reallocated. Following this process and under Article 7.1.1 of the WADA Code, BWF was required to determine the consequences beyond the 28th Summer Universiade.

    Appearing before the BWF Doping Hearing Panel on Saturday 30 January 2016, Yu accepted that Sibutramine was present in her sample and that she had consequently committed an anti-doping rule violation under regulation 2.1 of the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations (2015). Her argument was that she did so inadvertently and that either no sanction should take place according to Clause 10.4, or at least that any sanction should be reduced according to Clause 10.5.1.

    Given arguments and evidence from Yu’s legal representative, the panel stated: “In the athlete’s favour, it is the Panel’s opinion that Ms Yu did not take the pill to cheat or to gain a performance-enhancing advantage.”

    That conclusion led to a sanction of seven months’ ineligibility which the panel deemed “correct and fair” to backdate to the date of sample collection.

    This thereby ends Yu’s sanction on Friday 12 February, 2016, and she may resume her badminton career on Saturday 13 February, 2016.

    Interesting. Sibutramine is an amphetamine-like drug that was marketed for weight loss.

    It was pulled from the market in many countries because of reports of adverse heart effects.
    Was she using it simply to lose weight? Or was she using it as an energy stimulant?

    Either way, it seems unlikely that it was an "innocent mistake", since one of the countries where it is banned is China. She obviously had to make some sort of effort to procure it.

    Sibutramine would not be used for period suppression in any legitimate product.

    And it is a synthetic compound, not a naturally occuring substance which could have "accidentally" contaminated a traditional Chinese medicine.

    It is also a bit of a joke for the defense to claim that she was naive of the consequences of taking unknown substances because she had "only" been on the national team for three years.

    The real lesson here is that you should never never take unknown substances from anyone.
    But it happens everyday. Young people pop pills, etc from people they barely know. And sometimes the consequences are worse than a temporary sports suspension.
