IBU Anti-Doping Hearing Panel: Gregorin Found Guilty of Anti-Doping Rule Violation
The IBU Anti-Doping Hearing Panel has informed the International Biathlon Union about its decision of 28 September 2018, in the case of Ms Teja Gregorin (Slovenia), who was suspected of doping following Adverse Analytical Findings in re-tests of samples collected during the Olympic Winter Games Vancouver 2010. The re-tests were carried out in summer 2017.
The Anti-Doping Hearing Panel has rendered the following decision:
1. Ms Teja Gregorin has been found guilty of an anti-doping rule violation in the form of the presence of a prohibited substance as defined in Article 2.1 of the IBU Anti-Doping Rules 2009.
2. Ms Teja Gregorin is declared ineligible to compete for a period of two years commencing on the date of this decision, with the period of the provisional suspension already served - i.e. from 4 October 2017 - credited.
3. Apart from the Vancouver Olympic Games, over which the IBU has no jurisdiction and to which this Anti-Doping Hearing Panel decision does not pertain, all competitive results obtained by Ms Teja Gregorin from 7 February 2010 to 6 February 2012 have been disqualified, with all of the resulting consequences including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.
4. The IBU’s and Ms Teja Gregorin’s claims for damages are dismissed.
The athlete has 21 days to appeal this decision before the CAS.
