Patrick (Dillon) Schrodt, the U.S. Bobsled Athlete, has accepted a 16-month sanction for an anti-doping rule violation from the United States Anti-Doping Agency.
The 25-year-old Schrodt tested positive for Dimethylbutylamine (DMBA) as the result of an in-competition urine sample he provided on January 12, 2017, at the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) North American Cup.
Dimethylbutylamine is a Specified Substance in the class of Stimulants and prohibited in-competition under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing, the United States Olympic Committee National Anti-Doping Policies, and the IBSF Anti-Doping Rules, all of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List.
The 16-month period of ineligibility for Schrodt began on January 12, 2017, the date his positive sample was collected. In addition, Schrodt has been disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to January 12, 2017, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.
In another development, Leonardo Pires Nogueira, an athlete in the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, has tested positive for a prohibited substance and accepted a two-year sanction from USADA for his anti-doping rule violation. The 29-year-old Nogueira tested positive for Clomiphene (also known as Clomid) as the result of an in-competition drug test conducted on June 5, 2016, at the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) World Jiu-Jitsu Championships held in Long Beach. Clomiphene is a Specified Substance in the class of Hormone and Metabolic Modulators on the WADA Prohibited List and prohibited at all times under the World Anti-Doping Code and the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing, which applied to the 2016 IBJJF World Jiu-Jitsu Championships.
