Press Release

26th January 2018

USADA announced today that Sharon Jackson, of Atlanta, Ga., an athlete in the sport of racquetball, has accepted a public warning for failing to obtain a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) prior to her use of an otherwise prohibited medication. Jackson’s violation resulted from her use of a prescription medication containing spironolactone – a prohibited substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List – which she was using under the care of a physician. Jackson, 28, had forthrightly declared the use of her medication on her doping control form at the time of sample collection and subsequently obtained a TUE authorizing future use of this medication in sport.
