ITU imposes 2-year ban on Gaag (September 6, 2008 )

Yesterday The International Triathlon Union (ITU) announced it has imposed a two-year ban on Dmitriy Gaag, a triathlete from Kazakhstan, after committing an anti-doping rule violation in an out-of-competition doping control test in Des Moines, United States on June 20, 2008. 

The ban begins June 20, 2008 and prohibits Gaag from entering or participating in any competition or activity authorized by ITU, its National Federations (NFs) and/or any other signatory to the World Anti-Doping Code. 

Gaag's anti-doping rule violation was a result of an adverse analytical finding of recombinant erythropoietin (EPO), a substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List.
