WADA Pleased with Rejection of Danilo Hondo’s Appeal

WADA Pleased with Rejection of Danilo Hondo’s Appeal

WADA expressed its satisfaction following the decision of the Court of Appeal of Canton de Vaud, Lausanne, Switzerland, on May 16 to reject the appeal filed by cyclist Danilo Hondo against the two-year sanction imposed to him by the Court of Arbitration for Sport for testing positive for the prohibited substance Carphedon. This decision revokes the interim decision made on March 15 by the Court of Appeal of Canton de Vaud to suspend the athlete’s ban pending resolution of the appeal. The cyclist is therefore no longer allowed to compete.

Following the publishing of misleading information in the public domain surrounding this doping case, WADA clarified several points in a first statement published on March 28.
