4th placed athlete supplementary enters the podium
Yvonne van Vlerken follows Lisa Roberts

The US anti-doping agency USADA has declared a public warning and therefore ex post disqualified US-athlete Lisa Roberts, who finished DATEV Challenge Roth 2017 on 3rd place. Roberst has, due to her own confession, used an asthma inhaler without prior requesting the needed Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). She has accepted the sanction. Roberts will not serve any competition ban and is allowed to compete in further races.

TEAMCHALLENGE promptly informed all athletes who finished on the places 4 to 11, updated the official result lists and processed the payout of the new price money split. New finisher on the 3rd place in the official ranking of DATEV Challenge Roth is now Yvonne van Vlerken from the Netherlands, who has finished the race with the fourth fastest finishing time.

The especially strict anti-doping tests at DATEV Challenge Roth, executed by the NADA (national anti-doping agency Germany) together with the DTU (German triathlon federation) on behalf of TEAMCHALLENGE GmbH contribute to regulation violations not being undetected. DATEV Challenge Roth therefore will further be a “clean race”.
