Clinger Receives Sanction For Lifetime Ineligibility For Second Doping Offense

USADA announced on August 12, 2011 that David Clinger, 34, of Murray, Utah, an athlete in the sport of cycling, has accepted a sanction for his second doping offense. This offense is the result of an adverse analytical finding for the anabolic agent, clenbuterol, in an out-of-competition sample collected on June 29, 2011 while Clinger was approaching the end of a two-year period of ineligibility for his first offense, the result of an adverse analytical finding for the presence of testosterone and modafinil in a sample collected in June of 2009. Clinger accepted responsibility for using clenbuterol to enhance his performance. Clenbuterol is a prohibited Anabolic Agent under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the rules of the International Cycling Union (UCI), both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List. For this second offense, Clinger received a lifetime period of ineligibility, which began on August 9, 2011.
