Scottish hammer thrower Mark Dry has been provisionally suspended after being charged with an anti-doping rule violation.
The double Commonwealth Games bronze medallist is under scrutiny for contravening IAAF anti-doping rule article 2.5 – tampering or attempted tampering with any part of doping control.
UK Anti-Doping has issued the provisional suspension and Scottish Athletics has indicated that Dry will seek a hearing and appeal against the decision.
“There is a process to be followed and we have to await the outcome of that process,” Scottish Athletics said.
“We have a duty of care for all our athletes and that’s very much in our thoughts at this stage.”
