Sport

The FEI Tribunal has issued its final decision in a banned substance case under the FEI’s Equine Anti-Doping and Controlled Medication Regulations (EADCMRs).

Samples taken on 21 January 2017 from the horse Luke Skywalker 46 (FEI ID 103XB94/USA), ridden by Paige Johnson (FEI ID USA/10013411) at the CSI2* in Wellington (USA), tested positive for the local anaesthetic pramoxine.

The FEI Tribunal has imposed a one-year suspension. As the athlete had been provisionally suspended from 5 April 2017 for three months, she will now not be eligible to compete until 4 April 2018. The FEI Tribunal also imposed a fine of 2,000 CHF and contribution of 3,000 CHF towards legal costs.

The athlete has appealed the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
