US football Olympian Hope Solo 'warned' by USADA after positive dope test
Washington, July 10 (ANI): U.S. national football team goalkeeper, Hope Solo, has been given only a warning by the US Anti Doping Angency (USADA) after testing positive for a dope test.
Solo, 30, who tested positive for the banned substance Canrenone in a urine sample taken on June 15, has accepted the warning and will be playing for the United States women's Olympic football squad.
According to the USADA, she was taking a prescribed medication in a therapeutic dose under the care of a physician, which when metabolized, resulted in the adverse analytical finding.
"I took a medication prescribed by my personal doctor for pre-menstrual purposes that I did not know contained a diuretic," CBS News quoted Solo, as saying in a statement.
"Once informed of this fact, I immediately cooperated with USADA and shared with them everything they needed to properly conclude that I made an honest mistake, and that the medication did not enhance my performance in any way," she added.
Canrenone has been classified as a specified substance under the banned drugs, and therefore, its presence in an athlete's sample can result in a reduced sanction, the report said.
"As someone who believes in clean sport, I am glad to have worked with USADA to resolve this matter and I look forward to representing my country at the 2012 Olympic Games in London," Solo said. (ANI)
