News broke on Thursday that UFC smokeshow Rachel Ostovich had been handed down a yearlong suspension by USADA for testing positive for multiple PEDs. Unlike boxer Ginny Fuchs, who ingested her PEDs during unprotected sex, Rachel's positive test was the result of tainted supplements.
Her manager released a statement on the suspension, which ends in September due to a four month credit given to her by USADA, to TMZ Sports:
"Today USADA released the sanction against our client Rachael Ostovich to which Rachael and USADA have come to an agreement on. It is clear to both sides that Rachael was unaware of ingesting the prohibited substance and the contaminated supplement was identified quickly and sourced through USADA’s own testing facilities."
"Because the product was not certified by one of USADA’s third-party verification platforms, Rachael has agreed to take that responsibility to which USADA has given her a reduced sanction. Rachael encourages every athlete to be very careful about the supplements they take and to look for those accredited third party logos on everything they ingest."
"Rachael is back in camp now and will be reinstated to fight in September."
I would have loved for another ingested PEDs during unprotected sex defense. I'm sure it will happen again, but it wasn't meant to be this time around.
Whatever she's taking might have contained a banned substance for competition but it's absolutely working for her swimsuit game.
