World title revoked from American track and field athlete due to positive cannabis test
Moscow, April 27 – American Tara Davis Woodhull was disqualified for violating an anti-doping rule and stripped of her national indoor long jump title, according to the official website of the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
Davis Woodhull became champion on February 17. She was tested for doping that same day, and tested positive for THC, a chemical found in hemp, marijuana, and hashish.
The athlete was able to prove that the substance entered her body during the exit period from competition and did not affect athletic performance, and she also underwent a USADA-approved treatment program. Because of these circumstances, Davis Woodhull’s ban was reduced to one month.
Transit disqualification began on March 21. The athlete canceled her results from February 17. Davis Woodhull is 23 years old. At the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, he became the sixth American.
