Bodybuilder Sanctioned for Doping Violation

The Hong Kong Anti-Doping Committee (HKADC) announced today (30 November 2010) that Miss Koo Siu Ngan of Hong Kong, China, an athlete in the sport of bodybuilding, has been imposed a 2-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation.

The violation occurred during an out-of-competition doping control on 10 September 2010 and the athlete’s urine was tested positive for Clenbuterol.

In response to HKADC’s notification of adverse analytical finding, Miss Koo exercised her right to attend and testify at the hearing. The Hearing Panel had carefully considered the case and a 2-year sanction was imposed. She 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 Miss Koo subsequent to 10 September 2010 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.
