Bodybuilder Sanctioned for Anti-Doping Rule Violation

The Hong Kong Anti-Doping Committee (HKADC) announced today (2 September 2015) that Mr. LAU Siu Fung, athlete in the sport of Bodybuilding, has been imposed a 4-year sanction and a fine of HK$20,000 for an anti-doping rule violation.

The violation occurred during an in-competition doping control on 28 June 2015 where the athlete’s urine sample was tested positive for Stanozolol metabolites and Torasemide. According to the 2015 Prohibited List, Stanozolol and Torasemide are prohibited in sport at all times.

In response to HKADC’s notification of adverse analytical finding, Mr. LAU waived his right to order the analysis of his B sample. Mr. LAU also waived his right to request for a hearing to be convened. The Doping Control Panel had carefully considered the case and Mr. LAU was found guilty of violating Article 2.1 of the Anti-Doping Rules of HKADC. Mr. LAU’s period of ineligibility started from 24 July 2015 to 23 July 2019. As a result of the anti-doping rule violation, all competitive results achieved by Mr. LAU on 28 June 2015 were disqualified.

During the period of ineligibility, Mr. LAU is ineligible to participate in any capacity in a competition or activity described in Article 10.12.1 of the Anti-Doping Rules of HKADC.

HKADC, under the auspices of the SF&OC, is an independent committee responsible for the anti-doping programme in Hong Kong. HKADC is committed to preserve a doping-free environment for fair play in sport in Hong Kong.
