UK Athletics has today announced that hammer thrower Mark Dry has been provisionally suspended from participating in athletics after being charged with having committed an anti-doping rule violation contrary to IAA Anti-Doping Rule Article 2.5 (‘Tampering or Attempted Tampering with any part of Doping Control’).

The provisional suspension was issued by UK Anti-Doping and is in accordance with IAAF Anti-Doping rule.

The individual now has the opportunity to respond to the charge against him including the right to a full hearing of the case.

‘We are aware of the case involving a Scottish athlete,’ said scottishathletics.

‘There is a process to be followed and we have to await the outcome of that process (which involves UK Athletics and UK Anti-Doping).

‘We have a duty of care for all our athletes and that’s very much in our thoughts at this stage, too.’

scottishathletics understands Mark Dry will seek a hearing and appeal the decision. He is currently taking legal advice.
