Gabigol slammed with 2-year suspension for attempting to deceive anti-doping control  


Sensational Brazilian striker Gabriel Barbosa Almeida, also referred to as Gabigol by his many fans, has been hit with a two-year suspension for trying to trick anti-doping authorities.

The gifted attacker has been slammed with a two-year suspension after it was established by worried authorities that he attempted to falsify a drug test, a serious infraction in professional sports.

Recall that the Anti-Doping Sports Justice Prosecutor’s Office filed severe charges against Gabigol on April 8th, in response to an event that occurred at Flamengo’s training facility, Ninho do Urubu.

Later, a judicial procedure was started against Gabigol, which resulted in a trial at the Anti-Doping Sports Court (TJD-AD), a conviction, and a two-year suspension.

Remember that in a statement issued by his advisor, he had previously denied participating in any unlawful activity; therefore, it was important to make sure the test in question came back negative.

The Brazilian Anti-Doping Code’s article 122, which defines “fraud or attempted fraud of any part of the control process,” is what Gabigol was accused of breaking. As a result, he will likely be released on parole on April 1 and file an appeal following this ruling.
