McGoldrick's gold wait continues

Welsh boxer Sean McGoldrick’s wait to be awarded Delhi 2010 gold will go on until at least May after the Commonwealth Games Federation postponed the hearing of the Sri Lankan victor, who tested positive for a banned substance.

The CGF have decided to delay the initial hearing of Manju Wanniarachchi, which was due to take place in Kingston, Jamaica on January 17, only for an illness to prevent his legal representative from attending.

CGF President Michael Fennell said the decision to delay the hearing had not been taken lightly and the arrangements with all parties concerned had been made for the matter to be heard on January 17th.

“Under the rules of the CGF’s Anti-Doping Standard (ADS) and the WADA code, all athletes are entitled to legal representation at their hearing and consequently the late application for a postponement was agreed,” he said.

“While the delay is regrettable, it is unavoidable given the circumstances.”

 The Court will now sit in May in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

 Wanniarachchi defeated McGoldrick but returned an adverse analytical finding for nandrolone from an anti-doping test.
