Shot-putter Haborak could face lifetime ban
A Slovak shot-putter has been tested positive for the banned substance stanozolol, announced the Slovak Anti-Doping Agency (ADA) yesterday, 21 July.
Because the shot-putter, Milan Haborak, has been tested positively before in july 2004, he will probably be banned for life.
ADA director, Miroslav Motycik, informed that the agency had informed Haborak and the Slovak Track and Field Association (SAZ), which could now initiate disciplinary proceedings.
Haborak was suspected of doping after he pulled out of the European Championships in Barcelona, claiming he had a fractured bone in his left foot, and so the Slovak anti-doping officers tested him at his home on June 21.
