NADA Doping Case Against Jallow: Ulm Expresses Surprise

Ulm - The approach taken by the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) in their investigation of basketball professional Karim Jallow has raised dissatisfaction within his club, ratiopharm Ulm.

"As a club, we have not received any official information thus far," said Thorsten Leibenath, the sports director of the German champions. "We are not involved in the proceedings and, therefore, are unable to provide further comments. However, we are surprised that NADA has informed the media about an ongoing case, naming the individual, without clarifying whether there has been any violation of reporting obligations."

NADA is examining whether Jallow violated reporting standards during the 2021/22 season. The 26-year-old national player is part of a pool of athletes who are required to provide advance quarterly information, among other details, specifying their availability for testing at a designated location for one hour each day.

Three Reporting and Testing Failures

As confirmed by NADA, a case has been initiated due to three instances of reporting and testing failures. The case is currently pending. If violations are proven against Jallow, the shooting guard could face a two-year suspension, which may be reduced to one year depending on the degree of fault.

Jallow's agent declined to comment when approached by the German Press Agency, citing the ongoing proceedings. However, the player himself has reportedly confirmed to the club that he had been present for doping tests on multiple occasions throughout the previous championship season, with all results returning negative.
