Reigning World Archery Champion Brady Ellison has received a finding of no-fault decision from the US Anti-Doping Agency following an out-of-competition drug test where he tested positive for hydrochlorothiazide.

The substance is banned under the diuretics and masking agents section of the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

Ellison takes prescription medication, which contains no substances on the prohibited list, and provided a sample of this for detailed laboratory analysis. His medication was found to have been contaminated with hydrochlorothiazide at a level consistent with the positive test.

As a result, the US Anti-Doping Agency absolved Brady of any wrongdoing.

He will not receive a ban nor have any competition results disqualified. What’s more, due to the discovery of contaminated medicine, neither the anti-doping agency nor Brady had any obligation to make the positive test or outcome of the analysis public.
