The Brisbane-based freestyler on Sunday evening confirmed that she was the newest athlete to be trapped in a doping scandal after being positively tested for Ligandrol during a routine drug test on July 12.

But Jack is determined that she has no idea how the substance got into her body and said that the moment she found out she had returned positively, her world came to a halt.

Triple Olympian Lisa Currie described the doping scandal in which the 20-year-old was involved as a & # 39; nightmare & # 39 ;.

Currie told The Project Jack & # 39; s defense of ignorance & # 39; just isn't good enough & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Unfortunately for Shayna, the term drug traps continues to deceive … I met her and she is a beautiful young girl, but you have to see how the rest of the world sees this.

She went on to say that the situation – especially after Australian swimmer Mack Horton silently protested against the Chinese drug barrier Sun Yang – is terrible.

& # 39; I don't think it can get worse for Australia.

& # 39; Our credibility has now shattered, imagine what the rest of the world thinks about us.

& # 39; This is Australia's worst nightmare, & # 39; she said.

Jack has vowed to delete her name after the information was revealed to the public, but Currie said, regardless of the situation, it is always the responsibility of an athlete to control what they consume

& # 39; If it does not consciously take something, it unconsciously takes something, but ignorance is not an excuse – it is the athlete's responsibility to know what is not being tested as positive, & # 39; she said.

WHAT IS LIGANDROL?

Ligandrol is a little-known drug that is favored by bodybuilders to repair worn muscles.

It is known that it increases muscle mass.

The drug is currently undergoing clinical trials and is believed to be found only on the black market.

It is marketed as a possible treatment for osteoporosis and muscle degradation disorders.

Jack insists that the drug can be found in & # 39; contaminated supplements & # 39 ;.

It was assumed that Jack had waited for the B sample results after he had passed a drug test and was sent home from the world title team heading to South Korea.

But the 20-year-old posted on social media on Sunday that it had returned positively on July 19 – two days before the world swim titles began.

She tested positive for Ligandrol, a drug popular with bodybuilders and used for repairing worn muscles and increasing muscle mass.

& # 39; On Friday July 19, my & # 39; B sample & # 39; results in, & # 39; placed them.

& # 39; I felt that I hoped I had not used this substance and that it was all a mistake during testing and that I could return to compete for my country and with the team, but that was not the case .

& # 39; When I read the results, my brain couldn't even understand what I was seeing. & # 39;

Jack said she had never heard of Ligandrol, let alone pronounce it, but believed it was found in & # 39; soiled supplements & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Deep inside, I feel like I don't have to defend my reputation because I know I didn't do this, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; I get tested about every four to six weeks, so why should I take something banned and do this to myself?

& # 39; Especially in the run-up to the competition, where I could be tested daily.

& # 39; Why should I give myself this misery and run the risk of jeopardizing my career and my character?

& # 39; I have not and would not cheat and will continue to fight to clear my name, & # 39; said Jack in her statement.
