SANCTION
She was banned for 20 months after testing positive for the anabolic steroid oxandrolone following the 2017 World Cup event in Eger, Hungary. She avoided a longer suspension as she had been prescribed a medicine containing the prohibited substance by a doctor before she started competing internationally. (insidethegames.biz, 30 Dec 2017)
