The new rules released by the World Anti-Doping Agency (AMA) on the use of cannabis and cocaine in sports, they were a bomb. However, one of the pilots of MotoGP, who was sanctioned a few months ago for the use of anabolics, Andrea Iannone, expressed her rejection of the new measures taken by the organization. According to the Italian, his doping was accidental and his sanction was not fair.
On November 10, 2020, Andrea Iannone received the most devastating news of his sports career. After almost a year of investigation, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAS) decided that Iannone could get a four-year sanction for doping. This happened during the 2019 Malaysian Grand Prix. After some tests, Iannone tested positive for Drostanalone, a strong anabolic.
However, the former Aprilia rider continues to insist on his innocence. According to his words, a steak that he consumed was contaminated and that by ingesting the meat, his body received the anabolic. However, the AMA and the TAS did not believe the Italian rider’s argument, and sentenced him to a four-year disqualification, burying his sporting career in motorcycling.
The news continues to hit Iannone’s morale hard. That is why through social networks, the pilot made a comment regarding the new anti-doping measures taken by WADA. «I find it more and more difficult to understand. Positive for cocaine and all is well, while the innocent are sentenced to four years, “he said angrily.
Iannone was accused of taking Drostanalone, a strong anabolic used by bodybuilders to improve performance and gain muscle mass. This anabolic does not generate any positive results when riding the motorcycle. In fact, by gaining muscle mass, pilots are heavier and lose speed. However, the CAS went ahead with the sanction.
