Doping violations in beach handball announced

The EHF has announced that two players, one male and one female, from the Ukrainian national beach handball teams have tested positive for banned substances.

The testing was carried out by the EHF Anti-doping Unit at the Men’s and Women’s 18 Beach EURO in Ulcinj, Montenegro played on 29, 30 June and 1 July 2018.

Analysis of the samples took place at a World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) accredited laboratory.

All relevant documentation has now been forwarded to the EHF Court of Handball.

The EHF Anti-doping Unit, created in 2012, is an independent body responsible for carrying out anti-doping testing within EHF competitions. It works closely with the World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) to ensure that handball remains a clean and fair sport. More can be found at information at:
