Andrei Plotniy banned ?!

I see he is banned for 2 years, but I can't find any info about the reason for the ban.

Does anyone know what happened? He is a relatively well-known player, played in Khanty 6 weeks ago.

Re: Andrei Plotniy banned ?!

he's on the banned list on the anti doping section of the itf website but there is no information on why. There is information about all of the other players. Very strange.

Yes, at ITF anti-doping site they show he's banned for 2 years, but no info about decision, etc, I guess he failed an anti-doping at an interclubs or another non-official tournament, like happened to another player (Zitko) some years ago and the case didn't get publicity.

Clearly the fact that 5 people have responded to this since the thread was created yesterday might help answer that

Re: Andrei Plotniy banned ?!

He got 15 months because of carphedon, a stimulant, which was in a prescribed medication. It seems a bit harsh considering previous similar cases (Ivo Minar got 8 months because of another stimulant in a nutritional supllement he wasn't aware of containing a prohibited substance).

ITF Press Release
Decision in the case of Andrei Plotniy

London, England, 18 Mar 2010 - The International Tennis Federation announced today that Andrei Plotniy has been found to have committed a Doping Offence under Article C.1 of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme (presence of a Prohibited Substance in player’s sample).

Mr Plotniy, a 21-year-old tennis player from Russia, provided a sample on 1 November 2009 at the 2009 Challenger in Astana, Kazakhstan. That sample was sent to the WADA-accredited laboratory in Montreal, Canada for analysis, and was found to contain carphedon, a stimulant. Carphedon is a Prohibited Substance under the 2009 WADA List of Prohibited Substances and Prohibited Methods, and is therefore also prohibited under the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme. Mr Plotniy was therefore charged with an anti-doping rule violation under Article C.1 of the Programme and provisionally suspended from competition as from 19 December 2009.

Mr Plotniy asserted that the carphedon had got into his system through his ingestion of Phenotropil, a prescribed medication. He presented evidence that he been prescribed Phenotropil to treat a medical condition, and had consulted the drug information sheet for the product, which did not disclose that it contained a Prohibited Substance. He therefore denied taking any Prohibited Substance knowingly, and denied any intent to cheat.

The ITF accepted Mr Plotniy’s account of the circumstances surrounding his ingestion of Phenotropil, and accepted that he did not intend to enhance his performance. Under the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme, however, it is a player’s strict personal duty to ensure that no Prohibited Substance enters his or her body, whether as an ingredient in a prescription medication or otherwise, unless he/she holds an applicable therapeutic use exemption for such substance. Simply checking the ingredient sheet is not enough. There were many other steps that Mr Plotniy could and should have taken to avoid committing an anti-doping rule violation.

The ITF therefore confirmed Mr Plotniy’s commission of a Doping Offence under Article C.1 of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme, and determined that Mr Plotniy should be suspended from participation for a period of fifteen months, commencing as from 1 November 2009 and ending on 1 February 2011. The ITF also determined that Mr Plotniy’s results from the 2009 Challenger events in Astana and Khanty-Mansyisk should be disqualified, with resulting forfeiture of the ranking points and prize money that he won at those events.

The Tennis Anti-Doping Programme is a comprehensive and internationally recognised drug-testing programme that applies to all players competing at tournaments sanctioned by the ITF, ATP World Tour, and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. Players are tested for substances prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency and upon a finding that a Doping Offence has been committed, sanctions are imposed in accordance with the requirements of the World Anti-Doping Code. More background information on the Programme, sanctions, tennis statistics and related information can be found at www.itftennis.com/antidoping.
