Bodybuilder Sanctioned for Doping Violation

The Hong Kong Anti-Doping Committee (HKADC) announced today (13 October 2014) that Ms. YEUNG Ka Yin, athlete in the sport of Bodybuilding, has been imposed a 2-year sanction and a fine of HK$20,000 for an anti-doping rule violation.

The violation occurred during an out-of-competition doping control on 25 July 2014 where the athlete’s urine was tested positive for Clenbuterol. According to the 2014 Prohibited List, Clenbuterol is prohibited in sport at all times.

In response to HKADC’s notification of adverse analytical finding, Ms. YEUNG waived her right to order the further analysis of her B sample. Ms. YEUNG exercised her right to attend and testify at the hearing on 24 September 2014. The Disciplinary Panel had carefully considered the case and Ms. YEUNG was found guilty for violating the HKADC Anti-Doping Rules. Ms. YEUNG’s period of ineligibility started from 25 July 2014 to 24 July 2016.

She is ineligible to participate in any capacity with any sport affiliated to the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China (SF&OC) or organizations regulated by the World Anti-Doping Code.

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.
