Amateur Boxer and her father banned for PED distribution
by David P. Greisman
Sophie Tinklin, an amateur 20-year-old boxer from Wales in the United Kingdom, has been banned for four years by the sport’s anti-doping body for distributing performance-enhancing drugs, according to the Reuters news agency.
U.K. Anti Doping lists Tinklin’s violation date as occurring in July 2012. Her ban will end in February 2018. She was accused of “possession of one or more prohibited substances; trafficking or attempting trafficking of prohibited substances; and assisting, encouraging, aiding, abetting or covering up or any other type of complicity involving an anti-doping rule violation or any attempted anti-doping rule violation.”
The substances she was accused of possessing and trafficking were clomiphene, dihydrotestosterone, mesterolone, methyltestosterone, nandrolone, oxymetholone, stanozolol, testosterone and trenbolone
Tinklin’s father, Philip Tinklin, faced the same charges for the same substances and has received a lifetime ban from the sport.
“Philip Tinklin has five children, all of whom are involved in boxing,” the agency said in a statement. “The Panel found that Philip Tinklin’s involvement in the sport of boxing was significant, amounting to transporting his own and other children to Welsh Amateur Boxing Association (WABA) events and competitions. As a result, he fell within the definition of ‘Athlete Support Personnel’ in the anti-doping rules.”
