SEA Games duo tested positive for banned substance

KUALA LUMPUR Sept 28 - Two more 21st SEA Games athletes have tested positive for banned substances based on first or sample A tests.

SEA Games Federation medical commissioner Datuk Dr M. Jegathesan, who revealed this today, however declined to identify the duo or whether they were medal winners in the biennial regional games Malaysia hosted this month.

"We have concluded the first phase (of the doping test). At the moment, I only want to confirm that we are now acting on two positive cases. Maybe in the next 10 days, we can wind up all the doping tests," he said.

Jegathesan told reporters this after the presentation of cash incentives from John Hancock Life Insurance to 2001 SEA Games medal-winning national athletes here today.

The company gave away incentives totalling RM24,000 to 19 individual athletes and five best teams for winning gold medals at the games held from Sept 8-17.

Earlier, Indonesia's weightlifting gold-medallist Gustar Junianto tested positive for taking the banned substance nandrolone based on his urine test during the 62 kg men's snatch,clean and jerk event in Johor Baharu on Sept 11.

Gustar forfeited the gold medal to Thai lifter Chom Singnoi who was second then and correspondingly Chom's silver medal was awarded to Gustar's compatriot Nusiyanto while Vietnam's Nguyen Manth Thang who was originally in fourth place, got the bronze.

Jegathesan said the games medical commission would have to first notify the countries of the two athletes concerned which would then decide whether they should undergo the next tests.

"The OCM president (Tunku Imran Tuanku Ja'afar) has announced earlier a case involving an athlete found guilty of taking a banned substance during the games.

"We are now working on two further cases and we will do in a similar way (process). If the athletes are found to be using banned substance, then Tunku Imran will announce," Jegathesan said.

During the games the National Sports Institute in Bukit Jalil would take urine samples from medal winners or randomly from among other athletes and then send them for tests at the Universiti Sains laboratory in Penang.

Jegathesan acknowledged that determining whether the athletes involved had taken banned substance took time because of the various stages of testing.

"It is easier when an event is ongoing as we can inform the chef de mission to convey the finding the athlete concerned. But the process becomes a bit complicated now that the meet is already over," he said.

In the 1999 SEA Games in Brunei, the SFG traced three athletes - namely a shooter, a swimmer and a silat exponent - who tested positive for anned substances.

Thai shooter Somboon Vongveeranonchai who tested positive for marijuana forfeited his gold medal while the other two who tested positive for an asthma-suppression substance escaped punishment.
