“This is a classic example of contamination in a dietary supplement. An analysis was carried out in a laboratory accredited by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency), which confirmed the fact of pollution, “- quotes the words of the lawyer Anna Antseliovich RIA Novosti.

Antseliovich stated that the reason for the disqualification was a contaminated food additive, in the description of which there was no mention of the substance found in Manakov’s sample.
