Former Springbok Chiliboy Ralepelle banned for 8 years for doping

first_imgSouth African rugby player Mahlatse Ralepelle, popularly known as Chiliboy, who was found guilty of doping and subsequently banned for eight years. PHOTO: AFPFormer Springbok and Sharks hooker Mahlatse Ralepelle was handed an eight-year ban after testing positive for a banned substance last year.Ralepelle, popularly knowns as Chiliboy, tested positive for Zeranol, an anabolic agent, during an out-of-competition test on January 17 2019.This was the 33-year-old’s third positive doping test during his playing career within a 10-year period. Ralepelle, a repeat offender, had previously tested positive on two different occasions, in 2010 and 2015, while playing overseas.“The athlete challenged the doping charge and was afforded the opportunity to seek legal counsel to present his case and version of events to the tribunal panel.  The hearings were adjourned multiple times and were held over a period of six months.  The panel reached a decision first on the merits of the case where they found the player guilty of a doping offense,” the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) said.Ralepelle has 21 days appeal against the decision by the Independent Doping Tribunal Pane which runs until January 2027.The former Springbok told local publication News24 that though he and his team were trying to figure out how to move forward, this was not how he had envisioned his career ending.“Once we have all of those on the table, then it will make it easier for one to make a decision, whether you go ahead with the appeal or you stand back and move on with life,” Ralepelle told News24.“At the end of the day, whether it’s four or eight years, it’s the end of my career.”Ralepelle, who warned athletes to be extra careful and protect themselves, hinted that he was looking beyond rugby and possibly concentrating on his studies.“I need to get back out there in terms of furthering my studies and so on. I am looking forward to moving on to a completely new chapter outside of sport, which is what I’ve known my whole life.”Ralepelle made his Test debut for South Africa in 2006 against New Zealand in Pretoria while his final appearance was in a 25-10 defeat to England in Cape Town in June 2018.Related Kenyan marathoner Felix Kirwa banned for 9 months for doping Former Kenyan athlete Martin Keino on dopingcenter_img Kenya could be banned from Rio games over doping allegationslast_img read more

Photo: Mike Trout, A Duke Fan, Pranked His Angels Teammate, Utah Alum C.J. Cron

first_imgDuke cheerleaders carry school flags onto the court.OMAHA, NE – MARCH 25: The Duke Blue Devils cheerleaders carry their schools flags on to the court prior to the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Midwest Regional against the Kansas Jayhawks at CenturyLink Center on March 25, 2018 in Omaha, Nebraska. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim star outfielder Mike Trout might just be the best player in baseball. A first-round draft pick out of Millville (N.J.) High School in 2009, Trout never attended college. He had been committed to East Carolina but eschewed the college route to begin his promising pro career. Apparently, the 23-year-old Trout has adopted Duke as his college basketball program of choice. Trout’s Blue Devils will take on Utah tomorrow in the Sweet 16, and he decided to have some spring training fun at the expense of his Utah alum teammate, 1B/DH C.J. Cron. Still can’t believe Utah alum @CCron24 would root against his team !! #DukeNation pic.twitter.com/TidR1szKuO— Mike Trout (@Trouty20) March 26, 2015The Blue Devils are definitely favored tomorrow night, but it remains to be seen whether Trout or Cron will have the last laugh in the Angels’ locker room.last_img read more
