Double Commonwealth medallist Mark Dry’s top-level hammer career is effectively over UK Anti-Doping successfully appealed the decision to clear him.
The 31 year-old, from Burghead, who won bronze at the last two Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the Gold Coast, was charged in May last year with “attempted tampering” in a case relating to whereabouts regulations.
He was charged with lying about why he was not at the address he had provided for October 15, 2018.
He was suspended until October, when a the Sport Resolutions Panel found in his favour when they ruled there had been no subversion of the doping control process despite confirmation Dry had provided false information, but Ukad has successfully contested that decision.
The verdict is expected to be announced tomorrow and leaves Dry facing an uncertain future.
He has no further right of appeal, but will be considered to have already served five months of his ban.
