It's not just professionals cheating in sport, amateurs are also blood doping as well.
American age-group triathlete, Kevin Moats of Atlanta, GA tested positive for banned substances in an out of competition test on Jan 12, 2012. Today, an arbitration panel issued a 1 year ineligibility that is effective on Jan 30, 2012 according to the World Triathlon Corp.
"This ruling makes it clear that all Age Group Athletes are accountable to the WTC Rules and the TUE requirements of their National Triathlon Federations (NF) and National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADO)," stated Kate Mittelstadt, Director of Anti-Doping for the WTC. "WTC has and will continue to work with all Anti-Doping Organizations to urge athletes to take seriously their responsibilities and obligations in anti-doping."
Moats, 57, has some seriously fast times to his credit such as a 9:35 Ironman Florida time in 2010.
