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

The cyclist tested positive for stanozolol, an anabolic steroid, in a test conducted during February’s 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.
