Velonews: Lauren Mulwitz Tests Positive For Thc


Jan 3, 2005
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — USADA announced Friday that Lauren Mulwitz (Sisterhood of Cycling), of Marina del Rey, California, has accepted a six-month sanction for an anti-doping rule violation.
Mulwitz, 35, tested positive for Carboxy-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a metabolite of marijuana and/or hashish, above the decision limit of 180 ng/mL, as a result of a sample collected on June 7, 2015 at the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix held in Manhattan Beach, California. Carboxy-THC is a substance in the class of Cannabinoids, which are prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the UCI Anti-Doping Rules, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List. Cannabinoids are listed as Specified Substances, and therefore the presence of those substances in an athlete’s sample can result in a reduced sanction.
Mulwitz accepted a six-month period of ineligibility, which began on July 9, 2015, the date she accepted a provisional suspension. Based on Mulwitz’s successful completion of a USADA anti-doping educational tutorial, her period of ineligibility was reduced by three months and is now scheduled to expire on October 9, 2015.
As a result of the doping violation, Mulwitz has been disqualified from her eighth-place finish achieved at the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix on June 7, the date her sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes.
