REVEALED: The bombsmith why Shayna Jack's positive drug test was halted by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority
- The Australian Doping Authority has tried to explain their investigation method
- It said the method enabled it to find those who preoccupied our sport and athletes with & # 39;
- It is after it received heavy criticism for not revealing the results of Shayna Jack
- The group said that if investigations are made public, evidence can be destroyed
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority says that Shayna Jack's positive drug test results were not immediately revealed because researchers probed whether she was the victim of a & # 39; facilitator & # 39 ;.
The authority issued a statement Monday to tackle its investigation processes after it had come under fire for not revealing the results – instead leaving that task to the emerging swimmer.
In a statement, ASADA said it routinely tried to verify allegations of doping and to reveal whether & # 39; other athletes or assistants are involved & quot; said the statement.
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority stated in a statement why the positive results of the Shayna Jack drug test were not disclosed because they had to determine whether it was established
& # 39; More importantly, our research allows ASADA to focus on facilitators who may fall prey to Australian sport and our athletes, & # 39; it said.
& # 39; Australians & # 39; demand that our athletes compete on a level playing field and ASADA & # 39; s investigative powers and capabilities are a tool to ensure that we are at the forefront of this field. & # 39;
ASADA said that the legislative powers it has given have enabled them to properly investigate issues at the heart of potential anti-doping violations. to come.
David Sharpe, CEO, stated that more had to be done to increase insight into his research processes after ASADA received severe criticism for not revealing the results
& # 39; (Other anti-doping groups) processes are often limited to merely publishing a provisional suspension and then claiming a case with limited information or details, & # 39; it said.
The anti-doping body also noted that it was often not in its own interest to make public its investigations into a positive drug result.
& # 39; What would a doping facilitator do if they became aware of ASADA's research? & # 39 ;, the statement said.
& # 39; From our experience, evidence may be destroyed or our investigation frustrated by the fact that it was the subject of public comment. & # 39;
The statement did not specifically refer to Shayna Jack or her investigation, but CEO David Sharpe said more needed to be done to address confusion around his procedures.
Jack has maintained her innocence since it was revealed that she tested positive for the prohibited substance Ligandrol in a routine drug test.
The 20-year-old swimmer from Queensland said she will fight the indictment and submit a diary of all her supplements to ASADA after she said she found out it could be found in supplements.

She said this is an attempt to prove the investigative body and she did not willingly take the medication.
& # 39; At the moment it is a mystery how it could have entered her system, Shayna does not dive and does not weave it, & # 39; said her crib Phil Stoneman to the Sydney Morning Herald.
& # 39; It may be meat that we do not know, it is too early to speculate. & # 39;
Jack will learn how much Ligandrol is found in her system when she meets ASADA on Friday.
