Konrad BukowieckiA great athlete was tested positive during the Junior World Championships in Bydgoszcz: we are talking about the U20 World Record Holder Konrad Bukowiecki.

During the antidoping tests carried out by IAAF the athlete was tested positive to higenamine, the same substance the racewalker Liu Hong was disqualified one month for. This substance is not always forbidden, but it cannot be used during the race.

Bukowiecki immediately stated not to have assumed forbidden substances and he will ask for the B sample and if the latter had to result positive as well, he will have to somehow proof that the substance was taken unwillingly as a part of a medicine or integrator.

For these cases the ban can be up to 2 years long. We can only but wait for the B sample analysis and IAAF response.
