The entire tennis world in Poland was waiting for such news. Accused of doping and facing a 4-year suspension, Kamil Majchrzak proved his innocence. We know the final verdict in the case and the date of the tennis player’s return to the court.
At the end of 2022, Kamil Majchrzak announced that he had received positive results of anti-doping tests. However, the Pole immediately pointed out that he had never used doping and would prove his innocence. Today his nightmare comes to an end. Kamil Majchrzak proved his point.
When anti-doping tests detected banned substances in Kamil Majchrzak’s body, the Pole immediately received the highest possible penalty – a 4-year suspension. The Pole immediately pointed out that he was innocent and did not know how the forbidden compounds found their way into his body. He vowed to fight to clear his name, claiming he had never taken banned substances and was strongly against their use. Although Kamil Majchrzak’s team and his former employees sided with him, few believed that this story would have a happy ending, considering how rarely the players manage to prove their innocence.
In an extensive statement published on June 29, Kamil Majchrzak told his story and announced the outcome of the trial. It turned out that the Pole was innocent. Immediately after obtaining the suspension, Majchrzak sent all the drugs and supplements he was taking to the laboratory for testing for the presence of banned substances. The results showed that one of the drinking supplements he was taking was contaminated, although the prohibited substances were not listed on the packaging. The Pole sent the results to the tennis authorities. They examined the documents and admitted that the Pole was right. As a result of the situation, the 4-year ban imposed on Majchrzak was lifted. The sentence was reduced to 13 months of suspension. Majchrzak must serve this penalty in accordance with the regulations on what to do if the competitor has taken one of the prohibited substances unknowingly.
Kamil Majchrzak announced that he would return to professional tennis immediately after the end of the 13-month suspension. The Pole will return to the court in January 2024. Kamil, congratulations on your win. We are waiting for your match!
