Cañas tests positive in doping test.

Its on the news here in Argentina. Cañas announced today that the ATP informed him he tested positive for a doping test taken during the Acapulco tournament in February. He's stepping out of DC and is investigating how/where he could have taken the banned substance since he has no idea where he could have gotten from. He is both "innocent and shocked" and "living a nightmare".

He adds that he, with the help of his team, have always subsisted on a completely natural diet, so he is meticulously reconstructing his eating habits over the last 6 months. "I am shocked but innocent."

Horrible, horrible news.

DC for Argentina is over. And Cañas will have the hardest time living this down...

I hope there is a good explanation for this...

I know they are all different cases... asthma, contaminated suplements... but I'm tired of this...

If he is innocent, then I feel sorry for him He's a great fighter.

If he is not innocent, then I hope he will be getting a lengthy suspension.
