I appeared last Friday before the National Anti-Doping Panel at Sport Resolutions in London, on behalf of a professional boxer. This was an Appeal regarding the 24-month period of ineligibility against the athlete, as a result of a positive anti-doping test. The adverse analytical finding was the result of the use of a 'contaminated' nutritional supplement, which, unbeknown to the athlete, contained in it, the prohibited substance methylhexaneamine (MHA), which is a stimulant and it is classified by WADA as a specified substance. My involvement in this case made me realise that we are a long way away from educating and protecting athletes from the dangers of the use of dietary and other nutritional supplements. I hope, with the present post, to raise some concerns and disseminate further findings with a constructive discussion.
