Official Statement

Anti-Doping Rule Violation:

The Commonwealth Games Federation Anti-Doping and Medical Commission has confirmed that the sample of Shakul Samed, a boxer from Ghana, violated anti-doping rules for the 2022 Commonwealth Games. 

His A sample was found to contain a prohibited substance (diuretic and masking agent – Furosemide).

He has therefore been suspended with immediate effect.

He and the Ghana Commonwealth Games Association have been informed.

He will now have the opportunity to provide further information, including requesting an analysis of his B sample, before any charge is issued. 

The Commonwealth Games Federation has a zero-tolerance policy to doping in sports. We seek to maintain the integrity of the Commonwealth Games by running a comprehensive anti-doping programme that focuses equally on education, prevention, and testing.
