Therese Johaug Doping
On 13 October 2016, it was made public that Johaug had tested positive for the anabolic steroid clostebol which is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). In a press conference the same day, Therese Johaug said that the presence of the substance was due to using the ointment Trofodermin for her sore, sunburnt lips from 4 September to 15 September. The positive test was taken on 16 September. According to Johaug the medication had been handed to her by the team’s doctor, Fredrik S. Bendiksen, who at a press conference confirmed her story and said he had failed to notice that the medication contained a forbidden substance. Bendiksen resigned his position with immediate effect. On 19 October Therese Johaug was suspended by Anti-Doping Norway for two months while the case was investigated further.
Johaug was later given a 13-month suspension by the Norwegian Olympic Committee. This ban would expire in time to allow Johaug to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics. In March 2017, the International Ski Federation appealed this decision, arguing the suspension was at the low end of applicable suspensions and failed to reflect the fact that the athlete had missed a printed doping warning label. On 22 August 2017 the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) issued a decision “in which Ms Johaug is suspended for a period of 18 months commencing on 18 October 2016”. As a result of the suspension Johaug was not able to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
