Boxer suspended in Baku

The European Olympic Committees (EOC) announced today that Rexhildo Zeneli of Albania has been found to have committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation under EOC Anti-Doping Rules applicable to the Baku 2015 European Games, and has been suspended from participation at the Games.

Mr Zeneli, a boxer from Albania, provided a urine sample on 13 June 2015 in association with his participation in the 2015 European Games held in Baku, as part of the EOC’s out-of-competition testing programme. That sample was sent to the WADA-accredited laboratory in Seibersdorf, Austria, for analysis. The sample was found to contain a Furosemide.

Rexhildo Zeneli was adjudged to have beaten Irish bantamweight Francis Cleary in the preliminary rounds of the 2014 European Youth Championships in Croatia before losing at the last-eight stage.
