Peter Bol Exonerated After False Positive

Olympian Peter Bol says he has been cleared on any doping charges by Sport Integrity Australia (SIA).

In January, Bol tested positive for synthetic erythropoietin (EPO) in his A sample and was suspended from competitions.

The following month, Bol’s B sample returned an atypical finding, seeing his ban lifted – however SIA continued their investigations.

Bol maintained his innocence from the beginning.

“It was a false positive like I have said all along!” Bol said in a statement posted to X.

“The news from Sport Integrity Australia today was a dream come true.”

Bol says now his priority is the World Athletics Championships in Hungary and is in “good form and feeling well”.

The World Anti-Doping Agency will now review its EPO testing to prevent any more false positives in the future.
