Ipswich’s world champion Paralympic cyclist, Greg Ball, has been stripped of his most recent world record. The cyclist was banned from the sport for a period of two years after testing positive to an anabolic steroid.

The cyclist tested positive for stanozolol, an anabolic steroid, in a test conducted during Australian Track Cycling Championships in Sydney.

“Gregory would not have consented to the sample collection if he believed or suspected at the time that he was at risk of the violations. It would have been illogical for him to do so,” according to a submission that stated Gregory had taken prescribed anti-depressant medication in addition to his regular vitamins and supplements.
