Ariane Monticeli is temporarily suspended for doping offense

Ariane Monticeli, Pro Brazilian triathlete, is temporarily suspended of all oficial races after failing an anti-doping test a day before Ironman 70.3 Buenos Aires 2017.

On March 10th, the Saturday before the competition, Ariane underwent an “out of competition” anti-doping test, which the top 50 athletes in the WTC ranking are subject to throughout the season. The test showed the use of EPO (erythropoietin).

On Saturday, May 27th, around 6 PM, the athlete was notified of the adverse analytical result by the WTC itself, in a meeting with the company’s representative in Brazil and a conference call with Kate Mittelstadt, head of the anti-doping commission of the Ironman brand . The athlete was then barred from starting Ironman Florianopolis the next day.

The athlete has the right to request a counter-exam or to cooperate with the WTC and the World Anti-Doping Agency to clarify the case. The penalty for intentional doping can range from 4 years to a life ban.
