Ulihrach Suspended, Fined for Doping Offense
Anti-Doping Program tribunal sanctions Czech player with two-year suspension.

An independent Tennis Anti-Doping Program tribunal determined that Czech tennis player Bohdan Ulihrach committed a doping offense after testing positive for metabolites of the steroid nandrolone, the ATP, governing body of the men’s professional tennis circuit, announced today.

Ulihrach will receive a two-year suspension, a fine of US$43,770 and he must forfeit 100 ranking points. The suspension is effective from October 26, 2002, the day following the last match that he played on the circuit, and ends on October 25, 2004. The tribunal recognized that Ulihrach chose a voluntary suspension once notified of the positive test.

On October 3, 2002, while competing at the Moscow tournament, Ulihrach provided a urine sample that subsequently tested positive. Nandrolone and its metabolites are classified as a Class 1 banned substance under the rules of the Tennis Anti-Doping Program, a comprehensive and internationally recognized drug-testing program jointly used by the ATP, WTA Tour and International Tennis Federation (ITF).

At Ulihrach’s request, a Tennis Anti-Doping Program tribunal was appointed to review the evidence surrounding his positive urine test. Professor Richard McLaren, Professor of Law at the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada and an internationally recognized arbitrator with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), chaired the tribunal. The other tribunal members were Professor Arturo Marti of Puerto Rico and Prof. Eduardo de Rose of Brazil. The tribunal convened on April 23, 2003 in Jacksonville, Florida, and concluded that Ulihrach had committed a doping offense.
