Doping case at Mid European Championships

January 25 2013 | Sport

Our German member association IPZV has published further information regarding the positive medication test at the Mid European Championships in Wehrheim (D). The Austrian rider involved, Petra Reiter-Tropper, has – through her lawyer – asked to open the B-sample, to check if the outcome of the test of the A-sample is correct. The A-sample, taken from her horse Sjarmi frá Skriðuklaustri has been tested positive for prohibited substances. When both the A and B-sample show the same result a transgression of the rules about prohibited substances is a fact.
The German arbitration panel, chaired by Klaus Beuse, will then issue a verdict against the rider. Such a verdict is – based upon the FEIF rules – valid for all member countries.
