In a stunning turn of events, The New Paper has learnt that seven bodybuilders tested positive for banned substances at the recent National Bodybuilding Championships.
The seven athletes, whose names have not been disclosed by the Singapore Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (SBBF), have been notified by Anti-Doping Singapore (ADS) of the finding.
Eight athletes were selected randomly, from approximately 50 competitors at the event, for testing by ADS.
The seven bodybuilders whose tests came back positive now have the right to request for a second “B” sample to be analysed to confirm the finding.
Alternatively, they can choose to waive this right and accept the sanctions issued by the National Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee (NADC).
