Vietnamese gymnast suspended for 24 months for doping

March 09, 2024

Vietnamese gymnast Tran Ha Vi received a 24-month ban from competition after testing positive for doping, according to an announcement from the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG). Consequently, her performances from September 16, 2023 onward were nullified, including her 2023 FIG Asian Championship gold medal. A representative from the Vietnam Gymnastics Federation attributed Vi’s positive test to her unauthorized use of medication without reporting it. “We heard that she had allegedly taken medicine for a urinary tract infection before the tournament without informing the coaching staff.”Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reached out to Tran Chien Thang, president of the Vietnam Gymnastics Federation, but he declined to respond. She earned a silver medal at the 2022 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games held in Vietnam and clinched a gold medal at the 2023 SEA Games in Cambodia.
