ASADA warns on 5 supplements while announcing ban


CANBERRA, Australia (AP) -The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority says it has acknowledged a decision by Boxing Australia to impose a six-month ban on Kylie Fulmer for the presence and use of methylhexaneamine, a stimulant contained in several supplements that had resulted in positive tests for other athletes.

The female boxer's positive result came after an in-competition test at the 2012 Australian championships on Feb. 3. Her ban will end on Nov. 17.

ASADA said in a statement Thursday that methylhexaneamine is classed as an S6 stimulant on the World Anti-Doping Agency's Prohibited List. It also encouraged any athletes using five supplements, which it named, to dispose of them as they had resulted in positive test results for other competitors.
