Qalao positif !

Catégorie:

La FEI vient d'annoncer que le cheval de Maxime a été contrôlé positif à une substance interdite (un tranquilisant). L'affaire suit son cours. Le cavalier n'est pas suspendu mais son classement, celui de la France et sa qualification pour Rio sont clairement menacés. Maxime se dit innocent. Il est vrai qu'il faudrait être idiot pour utiliser du Vétranquil (ou Calmivet) à ce niveau de compétition. (Dans la suite, le communiqué FEI et la réponse de Maxime)

"Samples taken on 29 August from the horse Qalao des Mers (FEI ID 103MQ19), ridden in Eventing by Maxime Livio (France), have returned positive for the Controlled Medication substance Acepromazine. Acepromazine is a sedative. Qalao des Mers finished fifth individually and was a member of the fourth-placed French team. The above Controlled Medication positives will not result in an automatic provisional suspension, but will go before the FEI Tribunal after the Games at a date to be agreed between all parties. World Equestrian Games cases are not eligible for the FEI administrative (fast-track) procedure.

As at the Olympic Games, a positive result for a team member can result in the disqualification of the whole team. In the Qalao des Mers case, this could mean disqualification of the French Eventing team and loss of Olympic qualification for Rio 2016. It is the role of the FEI Tribunal to rule on what sanctions apply."Source FEI
