Banyana player banned for doping

CAF have sentenced Amanda Sister and the Banyana Banyana stand-in team doctor who were involved in abuse of a banned substance at the 2012 African Women’s Championship hosted in Equatorial Guinea.
Sister’s ban has been reduced from two years to one, while the doctor that administered the banned substance – who Safa refuse to name after being contacted by – admitted liability and has been banned for four years from participating in any football activity.Safa has also reported the conduct of the doctor to the South African Institute for Drug Free Sport (SAIDS).However, the player will serve her one-year suspension, which runs until December 16, 2013.

“It is very unfortunate for the player but Safa would like to warn all athletes that, in terms of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) rules, they are held responsible for any treatment administered to them by professionals. Medical practitioners are also warned not to place athletes at risk by administering banned substances during treatment,” Safa CEO Dennis Mumble says.

Safa has provided psychological support for Sister since January 2013 to help her cope with the setback.

“We also respectfully request the media to respect the privacy of Ms Sister during this difficult period,” Mumble concludes.
