Shayna Jack Doping

On July 27, it was revealed that Shayna had tested positive for a banned substance. The Swimming Australia on Saturday said Shayna had failed a routine out-of-competition drug test at a training camp in Japan a fortnight ago. The Swimming Australia in a statement said;

“Swimming Australia tonight confirmed that swimmer Shayna Jack has been notified by ASADA of an adverse test result following a routine out-of-competition drug test conducted by ASADA testers on June 26, 2019.

Once Swimming Australia was made aware of the adverse test result, it immediately took action – in accordance with the national policy – to provisionally suspend Shayna from the Australian swim team while a process was underway and accompanied her back to Australia from a training camp being held in Japan.

The Swimming Australia policy also means that any Australian athlete under provisional suspension, while ASADA investigations are underway, cannot take part in any competition, meaning Shayna was unable to travel to Gwangju to compete at the 2019 World Championships.”

Shayna admitted to testing positive but claimed she “did not take this substance knowingly”. She posted a photo on her Instagram with the caption;

“They say a picture is worth a thousand words, in this case a picture can not describe the amount of pain and vulnerability I am feeling right now. It is with great sadness and heartache that I had to leave due to allegations of having a prohibited substance in my system. I did NOT take this substance knowingly. Swimming has been my passion since I was 10 years old and I would never intentionally take a banned substance that would disrespect my sport and jeopardise my career. Now there is an ongoing investigation and my team and I are doing everything we can to find out when and how this substance has come into contact with my body. I would appreciate if you respect my privacy as this is very hard for me to cope with.”
