Bodybuilder Sanctioned for Doping Violation

The Hong Kong Anti-Doping Committee (HKADC) announced today (8 September 2011) that Mr. Kishor Kumar PUN, an athlete in the sport of bodybuilding, has been imposed a 2-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation.

The violation occurred during in-competition doping control on 26 June 2011 and the athlete’s urine was tested positive for diuretics (Furosemide) and anabolic steroid (19-Norandrosterone).

In response to HKADC’s notification of adverse analytical finding, Mr.PUN exercised his right to attend and testify at the hearing. The Hearing Panel had carefully considered the case and a 2-year sanction was imposed. He is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport signatory to the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China (SF&OC). As a result of the anti-doping rule violation, all competitive results achieved by Mr. PUN on 26 June 2011 at the 2011 Hong Kong Bodybuilding Championships have been automatically removed.

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.
