Powerlifter Sanctioned for Doping Violation

The Hong Kong Anti-Doping Committee (HKADC) announced today (16 June 2011) that Mr. Wan Ka Chun of Hong Kong, China, an athlete in the sport of Powerlifting, has been imposed a 2-year sanction for an anti-doping rule violation.

The violation occurred during an in-competition doping control on 2 April 2011 where the athlete’s urine was tested positive for Methandienone.

In response to HKADC’s notification of adverse analytical finding, Mr. Wan 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. Wan on 2 April 2011 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.
