Welsh 800 metre runner Gareth Warburton has been provisionally suspended from all competition after being charged with an anti-doping offence.
The 32-year-old from Caernarfon had been due to compete at his third Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this month before being informed of his suspension.
Warburton holds two medals from the European Indoor Championships and was also part of the Great Britain team at London 2012, where he failed to qualify from his first round heat.
In a statement released by his management Gareth said:
– Gareth Warburton
The news of this anti-doping rule violation has come as a great shock to me. From the outset, I would like to state that I have not knowingly taken any banned substance.
As a professional athlete, I have always supported and have been an advocate of clean sport. Nothing has changed in this regard.
However, I recognise that the responsibility for this situation lies with me and I’m committed to working with UK Anti-Doping and will fully cooperate in the legal process.
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish the best to all my team mates heading to the Commonwealth Games and apologise that I won’t be able to join them as part of Team Wales.
