World Athletics v Gomathi Marimuthu

A decision in the case of World Athletics against Gomathi Marimuthu has been issued by the Disciplinary Tribunal.

On 16 September 2019 the AIU issued Ms Marimuthu with a Notice of Charge for an Adverse Analytical Finding for 19-NA, a prohibited substance.

The Disciplinary Tribunal consisting of Anna Bordiugova, Dennis Koolaard and Paul Ciucur determined that an anti-doping rule violation (ADRV) was established pursuant to Article 2.1 and Article 2.2 of the 2019 IAAF Rules, and as a result, a four-year period of ineligibility is imposed. Ms Marimuthu’s competition results between 18 March 2019 and 17 May 2019 are disqualified.
