The United States Anti-Doping Association (USADA) announced that Carlee Acevedo-Fuller has accepted a 9-month suspension following a positive in-competition drug test. The test was administered following the USA Weightlifting Juggernaut Summer Showdown on June 11, 2017.
Acevedo-Fuller’s test revealed she had 1,4‐dimethylpentylamine and higenamine in her system. Upon notification of her positive test, Acevedo-Fuller told USADA she had taken a supplement sample packet she had been given by a friend prior to the meet.
The sample packet did not disclose that it contained banned substances, but the product information found online did list the two ingredients. In addition, the product is listed on USADA’s High Risk List.
Acevedo’s 9-month suspension began on June 11 when the positive sample was collected. We’ve reached Acevedo-Fuller to find out what supplement sample packet she took to help others avoid a similar situation, but have not yet heard back.
