    KUALA LUMPUR: After Malaysia’s wushu exponent Tai Cheau Xuen, another Malaysian athlete has failed a drug test, the second doping case within a month.

    The athlete was one of those randomly picked up for a doping test. Malaysian officials are now waiting for the results on the B sample before making any announcement.

    The athlete also took part in the Asian Games but was not among the gold medallists in Incheon, South Korea, so Malaysia’s ranking in the Games will not be affected.

    In Incheon, Malaysia won five gold medals in three sports – squash, karate and sailing.

    Last month, Cheau Xuen won the country’s first gold at the Asiad in the women’s nanquan and nandao all-round but was tested positive for sibutramine and was stripped of the gold medal.

    Her case now has been handed over by the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) to the International Wushu Federation (IWUF) and Cheau Xuen could be facing a two-year ban.

    The incident also led to the resignation of Datuk Martin Lim as president of the Wushu Federation of Malaysia (WFM).

    At the Malaysia Games (Sukma) in Perlis in September this year, three women athletes – weightlifters Jelinie Empera (Sarawak) and Siti Fazera Ishak (Perlis) and cyclist Dhia Danial Kharil (FT) – were tested positive for banned substances.

    The 21-year-old Jelinie, who was crowned Sportswoman of the Games, was stripped of her records and two gold medals. The results showed Dhia and Jelinie had traces of anabolic steroids, while Siti Fazera’s sample contained diuretics, often used as a masking agent.

    Probe into athlete’s dope test

    We have sought experts’ advice and discussed with doping specialists to see what could be the next steps. — KHAIRY JAMALUDDIN

    KUALA LUMPUR: The Youth and Sports Ministry is investigating the course of treatment administered to a national athlete who subsequently failed a doping test.

    Its minister Khairy Jamaluddin declined to reveal the athlete’s name until further tests confirm the presence of the banned drug.

    “We have sought experts’ advice and discussed with doping specialists to see what could be the next steps. We are still gathering the facts,” he said.

    Khairy told The Star yesterday when asked to comment on a report in StarSport of a national athlete who had failed a random test conducted during a major tournament.

    The minister said he first knew about the matter on Oct 2 when an international federation informed the national association affiliated to it here about the athlete failing the drug test.

    Khairy said the banned substance found in the A sample taken is normally administered during an athlete’s rehabilitation.

    Once informed, he said he immediately set up an ad hoc team to investigate the matter. The team is headed by National Sports Institute (NSI) chief executive officer Datuk Dr Ramlan Aziz.

    “The team looked into the details of the banned substance. We want to know what is the dosage used for the athlete or how it was administered,” said Khairy.

    That is...unfortunate

    I want to believe that LCW did not intentionally take it, but he should at least know about this issue and be careful about accidentally ingesting things if this was not intentional.

    On the other hand if he was intentionally doping then I don't really want to say anything

    i don't think the Malaysian authority treated this matter well, poor crisis control...
    They should arrange to have sample "B" tested asap to clarify the earliest, in order not to let every rumor expands and spreads...

    I can't help thinking BAM have left him hung out to dry to ruin his reputation. I wonder if this is payback for something, like the feuds of LCW's coaches with BAM.

    Come on people, LCW of all people's no cheat. He's a decent and principled guy.

    Enjoy your birthday and time with your family LCW, ignore this rubbish!

    :D

    if u see someone gravedigging a thread from years ago with generic comment, that means they are spammers. they will post something generic to start with, and then later edit their post with a link. if you see that in the future, don't reply to it and instead report it and it will get cleaned up.
