General
SANCTION
In July 2019 he was suspended from competition by the International Paralympic Committee [IPC] after it was revealed he had tested positive for clostebol. The ban meant he was unable to compete at the 2019 Parapan American Games in Lima, Peru, where he had been due to carry the Costa Rica flag at the opening ceremony. He said the substance had entered his system through a spray he had used after experiencing complications from a piercing. On the basis of the evidence presented, the IPC accepted that the violation was not intentional. He was ineligible to compete for two years, from 23 July 2019 to 22 July 2021.
