Maggie Vessey Receives Warning For Doping
Recent news confirmed that Maggie Vessey has been warned for doping by the US Anti-Doping Agency. She was expecting to get a clearance for the World Athletics Championships though.
It has been explained that the 31-year-old American 800-meter runner was tested positive for the prohibited substance Canrenone during a urine test at the IAAF World Challenge in Zagreb, Croatia, last September.
It has also been told that the drug had been prescribed to her by a doctor. "I took a prescription skincare product that was prescribed to me by my family practitioner, that I did not know contained a diuretic", she said.
She had apparently won the 800m title at the event in 1min 59.61 sec, but the recent positive dope test made her surrender the win. However, the banned substance being specified made her escape with a warning and the loss of her Zagreb results, and not a competition ban.
As soon as she got to know about the same, she got in touch with USADA and followed what was instructed. Nonetheless, she has applied for a Therapeutic Use Exemption for this medication, and it would be worth seeing if she would be able to get the clearance for next games.
