FEI Tribunal issues Final Decision in equine anti-doping case

The FEI Tribunal has issued its Final Decision in an equine anti-doping case.

The horse Sarem (FEI ID 105MZ22/KSA), ridden by Mohammed Almalky (FEI ID 10134839)/KSA), was selected for an in-competition doping control test at the CEI2* 120 - Al Ula (KSA) on 1 February 2020.

The Athlete was notified of the sample collection of his horse, however disappeared on the way to the testing box. By failing to submit the horse to sample collection, the athlete violated the anti-doping rules.

In its Final Decision, the FEI Tribunal imposed a two-year ineligibility period on the athlete. The Provisional Suspension of the athlete, which came into effect on 19 February 2020, is credited against the period of ineligibility imposed in the decision, meaning the athlete will be ineligible until 18 February 2022. He was also fined CHF 7,500 and asked to pay costs of CHF 2,000. The results obtained at the event have been disqualified.

The full Decision is available here.
