30/09/2010 – As expected, the B sample of Dimitrij OVTCHAROV’s doping test contained traces of clenbuterol, too. This is the result of the analysis by the Institute of Biochemistry at the German Sport University Cologne. Everybody had expected this result because an analytical error in the A sample is rather rare. OVTCHAROV can now request a hearing at DTTB’s Executive Board.

The Board gathers all information and hears experts. It can then decide to institute proceedings at the DTTB Board of Anti-Doping. This board evaluates all facts again and takes a decision. The German National Anti-Doping Agency, the Institute of Biochemistry and the DTTB support Ovtcharov’s plans to have his hair analysed as well. OVTCHAROV assumes that he inwittingly ingested clenbuterol during a stay in China in the middle of August.

An hair analysis could prove that he ingested the substance only for a short while. A hair analysis takes several days. Whether his teammates, coaches, and DTTB officials who joined him in China will give hair samples as well is depending on OVTCHAROV’s result.
