Swayer Shayna Jack has been told that she is faced with a four-year ban on a drug test failure – the maximum penalty available.
Jack, 20, tested positive for the prohibited substance Ligandrol in both her A and B samples prior to the world championships in South Korea.
She is faced with a four-year ban unless she can prove that she is innocent.
Four years is the standard ban for swimmers caught on drugs classified as anabolic.

Jack was banned from the International Swimming League earlier on Tuesday while she is preparing to fight her doping case.
Jack was included in the Cali Condors team for the ISL series from October.
But the ISL says that Jack has been suspended from the competition pending the outcome of her doping case.
The 20-year-old was selected for the ISL, a new series of events with some of & # 39; the world's best swimmers.
Andrea di Nino, general manager of the ISL, says that Jack's selection has been withdrawn for the meetings being held in Europe and the United States from October.
& # 39; No violation of doping controls is overlooked & # 39 ;, said di Nino in a statement on the ISL website.

& # 39; This is another case that serves to reiterate our position on prohibited substances and the violation of doping control rules. Such behavior will never be approved.
& # 39; From the start, ISL has been an advocate of transparency and clean sport.
& # 39; Athletes with doping control or ethical violations are considered non-eligible without recourse. & # 39;
The ISL was founded and funded by the Ukrainian billionaire and swimming fan Konstantin Grigorishin, who has reserved a budget of US $ 20 million for the first series, of which $ 7 million goes to swimmers and teams in prize money.
Jack has tested positive for the prohibited drug Ligandrol, a muscle growth agent, during an Australian swimming camp prior to the world championships in South Korea.
Jack withdrew from the world titles, initially with reference to personal reasons, only for her positive drug test that was revealed last weekend.
Jack has refused knowingly and forbidden means to take drugs and will bring her case to ASADA in Canberra on Friday.
Her manager Philip Stoneman said that the swimmer would not dispute the presence of the prohibited drug in her system.
& # 39; I don't think this is a matter for Shayna who denies that there is something in her body, & # 39; said Stoneman Monday.
& # 39; What she's doing is fighting her innocence because it's not supposed to be there and she doesn't know how it got in there. & # 39;
