Dimitar Kutrovsky (#347) banned for doping

Kind of odd that no one already posted this.
Anyone know anything about this guy? Why'd he get 2 years when Kendrick and Odesnik got 1? (same substance as Kendrick and same excuse -- 'I didn't know it was there')

DECISION IN THE CASE OF DIMITAR KUTROVSKY
by Press Release | 15.05.2012

The International Tennis Federation announced today that Dimitar Kutrovsky has been found to have committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation under Article 2.1 of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme (presence of a Prohibited Substance in player’s sample).

Mr Kutrovsky, a 24-year-old tennis player from Bulgaria, provided a sample on 14 February 2012 at the SAP Open held in San Jose, United States. That sample was sent to the WADA-accredited laboratory in Montreal, Canada for analysis, and was found to contain methylhexaneamine, a stimulant. Methylhexaneamine is a Prohibited Substance under section S6 of the 2012 WADA List of Prohibited Substances and Prohibited Methods, and is therefore also prohibited under the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme (TADP). Mr Kutrovsky was therefore charged with an Anti-Doping Rule Violation under Article 2.1 of the Programme.

Mr Kutrovsky asserted that the methylhexaneamine, for which he did not hold a valid therapeutic use exemption, had got into his system through his ingestion of the supplement Jack3d. He denied any intent to enhance his performance as a result of taking the Jack3d.

The ITF did not dispute Mr Kutrovsky’s account of the circumstances surrounding his ingestion of methylhexaneamine, but asserted that he had not demonstrated to the required standard that he (a) did not intend to enhance his performance, and so failed to meet the requirements to satisfy article 10.4 of the TADP (Elimination or Reduction of the Period of Ineligibility for Specified Substance under Specified Circumstances), and (b) bore No Significant Fault or Negligence.

The tribunal concurred, and therefore confirmed Mr Kutrovsky’s commission of an Anti-Doping Rule Violation under Article 2.1 of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme, and determined that he should be suspended from participation for a period of two years, back-dated to commence from 14 February 2012 and so ending at midnight on 13 February 2014. The tribunal also determined that Mr Kutrovsky’s results at the 2012 SAP Open and Brownsville Futures events 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, and WTA. 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.

Who cares? This mug could replace his blood with steroids and still not crack top 100.

the sad thing is that money that he has to give back is greater than 1 third of his career earnings

Re: Dimitar Kutrovsky (#347) banned for doping

the key difference is that the ITF and judge accepted that Kendrick didn't intend to enhance his performance. (his probably bullshit jetlag pill excuse)

They didn't accept this with Kutrovsky (who said he took the supplement after training for a "boost" the same way he would a Red Bull or Gatorade)

It's pretty ridiculous really. His lawyers must have been absolute shit to be honest.

Kendrick's testimony was absolute bullshit from start to finish and got a shorter ban.

It has to be said though, if Kutrovsky is telling the truth and the positive test resulted from taking the supplement "Jack3d" he must a complete dumbass.

Basic google search and even the company's own website will tell you you won't pass a doping test if you take it.

Case law on MHA is very mixed so there is a chance CAS will reduce the ban on appeal.

He is the #2 ranked Bulgarian player after Grigor Dimitrov. An interesting thing about him is that he plays forehand and backhand with 2 hands. Besides his QF run at San Jose, he has mostly been playing in Futures, sometimes Challenger qualies and rarely Challenger main draws. Pretty sad for him, he just gained some major points(and money) from San Jose that would have allowed him to play more at the Challenger level

Also, he gave a good 4-set fight against Baghdatis in Davis Cup.

He will appeal and I hope that the ban gets reduced at least in half.

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

maybe that could be their tagline:
Jack3d - you won't pass a doping test if you take it

A little Google search and I stumbled upon some angry guy's rant about it being banned in Canada
http://www.robkingfitness.com/rant/jack3d-banned/

Gosh, I do wonder what goes through the minds of athletes who either knowingly take these things or knowingly take chances.

Re: Dimitar Kutrovsky (#347) banned for doping

If they could ban Karol Beck for doping and not listening explanation, they could ban everybody

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Re: Dimitar Kutrovsky (#347) banned for doping

this guy is going to get banned for taking some dietary supplement that you can get online for 20 dollars. I never knew it was so easy to get 'roids.

Re: Dimitar Kutrovsky (#347) banned for doping

I don't believe anyone ranked that low would do this intentionally. It's not like this would have vaulted him into the top 200 in the world. It must have been sheer carelessness on his part and now it's cost him 2 years. That said he'll probably make a lot more money in those two years than he ever has on the tour...

His own fault. Can't feel sorry for him and his rather lame excuse.

Another bulgarian case after Sesil Karatantcheva (WTA)
Quote:
Karatantcheva was also known for testing positive on two drug tests for nandrolone; and after serving a two-year ban of playing professional tennis, she returned in 2008

My doubts regarding the "rigorous" anti-doping work of the ATP, WTA and ITF are all gone. They are obviously doing their very best.
