Press Release

29th July 2020 

USADA announced today that Vladyslav Dombrovskiy, of Colorado Springs, Colo. an athlete in the sport of wrestling, has accepted a four-year suspension for a violation involving his possession and use or attempted use of prohibited substances and his refusal to provide a urine sample.

Dombrovskiy, 30, refused to provide a sample as requested by a USADA doping control officer during an out-of-competition test on March 12, 2020. Evading sample collection or refusing or failing to submit to sample collection without compelling justification is an anti-doping rule violation under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing, the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee National Anti-Doping Policy, and the United World Wrestling Anti-Doping Rules, all of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

During an investigation, USADA also obtained specific and credible evidence that Dombrovskiy possessed letrozole in 2019, purchased a product containing GW1516 from an online store in January 2020, and used tamoxifen in February 2020, which he received from a friend. Letrozole and tamoxifen are Specified Substances and GW1516 is a Non-Specified Substance in the category of Hormone and Metabolic Modulators. These substances are prohibited at all times under the above-referenced rules.

Dombrovskiy’s four-year period of ineligibility began on March 10, 2020, the date he admitted using prohibited substances. In addition, Dombrovskiy has been disqualified from competitive results obtained on and subsequent to July 1, 2019, the approximate date on which he first possessed a prohibited substance, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.
