“We would like to inform you that the analysis of the B-sample taken from the player Kamil Mechrzak confirmed the result of the A-sample,” we read in POLADA’s message. Therefore the results of laboratory analyzes are final and the case will be referred to ITIA.
A urine sample on November 9 tested positive for S2 hormones and related substances. Kamil Mechrzak faces four years of disqualification.
The player confirmed in a statement that he did not knowingly take a banned substance and intends to prove his innocence. We read “I have begun the hardest battle of my life – the struggle to prove my innocence and to return to the sport I love”.
The tennis player was scheduled to be searched three times during the tournaments he participated in in the fall. It was also screened on 9 November. The results of all samples were positive, meaning that they contain prohibited substances. The case has been referred to ITIA (International Tennis Integrity Agency).
Kamel Mechrzak is currently ranked 77 in the ATP rankings. He was due to play in the FA Cup this week, but had to withdraw due to positive doping tests.
