League youngster has drug ban cut

Gold Coast under-20 rugby league player Kurt Foggo has had his appeal for a drugs ban partially upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Foggo was originally handed a two-year suspension for testing positive to the stimulant dimethylpentylamine (methylhexaneamine), but was successful in having that reduced to just six months.

The Titans youngster is now free to play, having been provisionally suspended since October 11, 2010 and having the offence confirmed at an NRL anti-doping tribunal hearing on November 4.

An appeal filed on February 15 by Foggo against the decision made by the NRL tribunal was declared admissible by the arbitrary court.

The period of ineligibility was ruled to be six months from October 11 last year, meaning Foggo can now make his return to the field.

Foggo returned a positive result after using a pre-workout supplement Jack3d, which he said at the time he bought from a supplements retailer on the Gold Coast.

The Tweed Heads junior said in February he wasn't a drug cheat and was fighting for a downgrade on the grounds he had attempted to check whether he could legally use the substance - including a search of the ASADA website.


Thought this deserved a new thread.
