Doping case at Mid European Championships: B-sample confirms A-sample

March 5 2013 | Sport

The results of the B-sample of the doping test from the Mid EUropean Championships 2012 are now available: The Institute for Biochemistry of the German Sporthochschule in Köln in presence of a representative of the rider opened the sealed sample, which had been taken routinely from Sjarmi frá Skriðuklaustri (starting for Austria).
In the analysis the prohibited substance mefenamin acid was also found in the B-sample. Following the anti-doping statutes of our German member association IPZV and the German FN evidence of the existence of a prohibited substance has been provided in case of identical results of the A- and B-sample. The arbitration panel of IPZV will on this basis now continue the procedure against the rider of Sjarmi, Petra Reiter-Tropper.
