The West Australian Football Commission confirms that Peel Thunder player, Michael Randall, has been issued with notice of an Anti-Doping Rule Violation under the Australian Football Anti-Doping Code which applies to all Australian Football competitions including the WAFL and is administered by the AFL.
It is alleged that a sample provided in-competition by Mr Randall tested positive for Phentermine which is classified as a Non-Specified Substance (class S6a. Stimulants, prohibited in-competition only) under the World Anti-Doping Code’s Prohibited List 2021.
The AFL has imposed a Mandatory Provisional Suspension on Mr Randall, which prevents him playing matches and participating in team training, pending the determination of the matter including further investigation by Sport Integrity Australia.
In accordance with strict confidentiality obligations imposed by the Code, no further comment will be made by the WAFC, Peel Thunder, AFL,SIA or Michael Randall at this time.
