The seven bodybuilders who tested positive at the 50th Singapore National Bodybuilding and Physique Sports Championship 2012 on Jul 1, 2012 have been banned for two years.
The National Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee (NADC), appointed by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS), met on Aug 6 to review the case and decided to impose a two-year ban on the athletes.
They were disqualified from the 50th Singapore National Bodybuilding and Physique Sports Championship 2012 and are ineligible to participate, as an athlete or support personnel, in any sport during the period of the ban.
They were also informed that they can ask to have a B sample tested (another separate sample), but none of them responded by the Jul 31 deadline.
The athletes have until Aug 19 to appeal the decision.
