Tundara: Four-year doping sentence 'unfair and disproportionate'

Tandara Caixeta has been sentenced by the Tribunal for Sport Justice Anti-Doping (TJD-AD) to four years in prison with a suspended use of Ostarine, an anabolic substance banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). The trial concluded on Monday night (23). And the player spoke in the early hours of Tuesday (24), on Instagram and Twitter, about her regret for the decision, and said that she would appeal the ruling.

In the statement, Tundara said she was convicted of something she did not do and had “more than enough” evidence that she was infected (ie, she did not consume Ostarina). She described the punishment as “unfair and disproportionate and preceded by a strange leak of a process that was supposed to be secret.” On the contrary, understanding TJD-AD “contradicts the best international jurisprudence”.

Olympic volleyball champion at the London (UK) Games in 2012, Tandara has been prophylactically suspended since August last year, when the Brazilian Anti-Doping Laboratory (LBCD) confirmed the presence of Ostarina in the test carried out a month earlier, in Saquarema (RJ). ), during the training of the women’s team for the Tokyo Olympics (Japan). The result came in the middle of the last stage of the Japanese land disputes. The player was eliminated by the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB) hours before Brazil faced (and beat) South Korea in the semi-finals. The national team won the silver medal, surpassing the United States in the decision.
