Tamira Paszek to receive no ban for illegal treatment


Tamira PaszekThe disciplinary committee of Austria’s anti-doping agency decided that Tamira Paszek should not be blamed for the blood reinjection, even though the treatment was illegal.

In July, the 18-year-old Paszek’s blood was taken for enrichment and later reinjected in her lower back. The procedure of reinjecting one’s own blood is considered a violation of anti-doping rules.

Tamira Paszek has ended her season in August, because of the injury. Actually, she hasn’t played since retiring in the Wimbledon opening round. (photo courtesy of Women Who Serve)
