Anti Doping Rule Violation


Mr Robert Hazelton was selected for anti-doping testing at a NI Raw Power Competition 18th June 2016 and his A Sample was found to contain terbutaline, which is listed as a beta-2 agonist (S3) under the 2016 Prohibited List of the WADA Code. No request for B sample testing was made and no TUE submitted. This is a violation GBPF Anti-Doping Policy (Feb 2016).

The Disciplinary Committee have therefore ruled Mr Hazelton be ineligible to be a member of, or take part in any British Powerlifting competition, for a period of four years effective from June 18th 2016

Date: 06/09/2016 | Author: CEO

British Powerlifting is the only UK powerlifting organisation that carries out independent WADA compliant drug testing. In 2017 we conducted some 140 anti-doping tests, all at our own expense. GB lifters in World Championships are registered with the IPF for Out of Competition Testing (OCT).
