Sprinter Bola Lawal gets two-year sports ban
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) today acknowledged the decision of Athletics
Australia to impose a two-year ban on Bola Lawal, a sprinter who competed for Nigeria at the
2006 Commonwealth Games, for the presence and use of an anabolic agent.
Mr Lawal tested positive for the prohibited substance methandienone on 4 March 2010 at the
IAAF 2010 Melbourne Track Classic in Victoria.
Under the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) 2010 Prohibited List, this anabolic agent is
prohibited at all times (both in- and out-of-competition).
Anabolic agents pose many threats to an athlete’s health. Some side effects may include an
increase in blood pressure and cholesterol levels which can lead to heart disease. Liver disease
and infertility can also result from the use of these agents.
Mr Lawal is ineligible to participate until 12 April 2012 as an athlete or support person in any
national and international sports that have adopted a WADA compliant anti-doping policy. Under
the World Anti-Doping Code’s policy of mutual recognition this ban applies to all IAAF events.
Athletics Australia has also disqualified Mr Lawal’s results obtained at the IAAF Melbourne
Classic, where he placed first in the 100m sprint and second in the 200m sprint, with the
resulting consequences including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.
Any Australian can play their part and stamp out doping by confidentially reporting suspicious
doping activity through the secure ‘Stamp Out Doping’ form on our website [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or
the ASADA Hotline 13 000 ASADA (13 000 27232).
