Manchester player suspended for stanozolol

29 December 2008 No Comment

Manchester prop Marshall Gadd has been suspended from rugby for two years after testing positive for the banned substance stanozolol.

It follows a random drugs test after the National Division One match between Coventry and Manchester on 25 October.

The ban runs until 18 November 2010 and includes playing, training or being a member of a club, coaching or acting in any official capacity within the sport.
Gadd has two weeks to appeal against the ruling.

Like nandrolone and methandrostenelone, stanozolol is one of the most of abused anabolic steroids by athletes. Some of the most publicized cases of stanozolol abuse include mixed martial arts fighters Tim Sylvia and Kimo Elopoldo, boxer Leopoldo Vargas, hepthathlete Lyudmila Blonkska, and slugger Rafael Palmeiro.

Likewise, MLB’s Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens have been alleged of taking this anabolic steroid.  But perhaps the most controversial case involving stanozolol was of Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson. Johnson tested positive for this prohibited compound after winning the100-meter final at the 1988 Summer Olympics held in Seoul, South Korea. He was subsequently stripped of his medal and record in said event.
