UIPM statement on Qian Chen (CHN)

The UIPM Court of Arbitration has reviewed the decision taken by the UIPM Doping Review Panel in the case of Qian Chen (China) after the athlete registered a complaint through her national anti-doping body (CHINADA).

Qian Chen was originally suspended for four years by the UIPM Doping Review Panel following her disqualification from the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, where she had finished 4th in the Women’s Individual event. The athlete was found to have committed a doping violation during the Rio Games after testing positive for the banned substance Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ), a diuretics or masking agent.

The suspension imposed on Qian Chen (China) has now been reduced from four years to two years after detailed analysis of the situation.

Qian Chen will be permitted to compete from the end of her period of ineligibility on August 21, 2018.

UIPM is fully committed to the fight against doping, the promotion of clean sport and protection of clean athletes.


UIPM statement on Logan Storie (USA)

MONACO, May 16th 2018 - The UIPM Doping Review Panel has imposed a 15-month suspension on the athlete Logan Storie (United States) following a doping violation.

The athlete tested positive for the prohibited substances Androsterone and Etiocholanone after a urine test carried out during UIPM Pentathlon World Cup Los Angeles on February 24, 2017.

The offence contravened Article 2.1 of the UIPM Anti-Doping Rules, which carries a standard suspension of four years, “unless the athlete can establish that the violation was not intentional”.

In this case, Logan Storie (USA) provided evidence that satisfied the UIPM Doping Review Panel that he did not knowingly ingest the prohibited substances, and his suspension was set at 15 months. All of his results in UIPM competitions since February 24, 2017 have been disqualified and he is free to return to the sport from May 24, 2018.

UIPM is fully committed to the fight against doping and the promotion of clean sport and clean athletes.
