Olympic Games 2008 - Showjumpers Suspended for Doping

Hong Kong 21st August 

The following combinations will not be competing in the individual Jumping final competition held tonight (Thursday, 21st August). They have been provisionally suspended by the FEI further to further doping/medication control tests that indicated the presence of capsaicin in each horse.

Bernardo Alves and Chup Chup from Brazil

Chritian Ahlmann and Coster from Germany

Denis Lynch and Latinus from Ireland

Tony Andre Hansen and Camiro from Norway.

Capsaicin is classified as a prohibited substance given its hyper sensitising properties and its pain relieving properties. It is a topical lotion or paste and is not taken orally.

The FEI provisionally suspends all competitors who test positive in doping or positive medication cases at the Olympic Games in the interest of integrity of the sport.

A further sample from each horse is currently being evaluated (B-samples). Upon report of a positive B-sample result, evidence and written submissions will be requested from the rider, and a three member panel of the FEI Tribunal will be appointed. This panel should make a decision as to the applicable sanctions as early as possible and provide for a hearing to be held as necessary. The competition results will be amended as indicated in the Tribunals final decision.

This could change the medal placings as the Norway team may be disqualified based on the findings of the Norwegian horse, Camiro's,  B-sample. If the Norwegian team is disqualified the Swiss team will take the Bronze medal.
