DC 9 AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION OF INDIVIDUAL RESULTS

Doping Control Rules 2009-2013

A violation of these Anti-Doping Rules in Individual Sports in connection with an In-Competition test automatically leads to Disqualification of the result obtained in that Event with all resulting consequences, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.

[Comment to DC 9: When a Competitor wins a gold medal with a Prohibited Substance in his or her system, that is unfair to the other Competitors in that Event regardless of whether the gold medallist was at fault in any way. Only a "clean" Competitor should be allowed to benefit from his or her competitive results. For Team Sports, see DC 11 (Consequences to Teams).]
