Tamira PaszekAustrian Tamira Paszek supposedly violated anti-doping rules, unintentionally as she claims, and is now facing a provisional suspension while officials investigate whether that is the case or not.

The 18-year-old had her blood taken for enrichment and later reinjected in her lower back, the treatment prohibited under international anti-doping rules.

The Austrian anti-doping agency has asked its disciplinary committee to temporarily ban the 59th-ranked Paszek.

Committee chairman Gernot Schaar said Wednesday that Paszek has seven days to respond. (source: The Canadian Press, photo courtesy of Women Who Serve)
