What are the types of contamination that Simona Halep can invoke
The lawyer also clarified which are the three types of contamination that Simona Halep can invoke. This concerns the contamination of food products, food supplements or contamination appearing on the anti-doping control chain. However, Jura also added that for each type of sports contamination, he needs separate evidence to prove his innocence.
“The ban may be reduced or even canceled if the two conditions stipulated by the World Anti-Doping Code are cumulatively met, namely establishing very clearly how the substance entered the body and the athlete’s lack of intention to take the banned substance to improve performance in sports,” says Cristian Jura.
If Simona Halep had not been suspended from official tennis tournaments, she could have participated with the Romanian team in the match against Hungary in the Billie Jean King Cup play-off, the former FED Cup. In this context, Romania’s non-playing captain Horia Tecau has revealed that he spoke with Halep. The athlete told her that she would not even be in the stands at Oradea, informs Digisport.ro.
