|His ban has been reduced and heīs allowed to
play again after September 11th 2006!!!!!!!!!
But I think the main thing is that itīs clear now that he has always
said the truth.
"His only failure was not to check the
medication personally despite knowing it had passed through several
hands before being delivered to him."
"A mistake in the delivery of the medication was made not by the
player, but rather by the tournament staff,"
"Caņas had been prescribed medication by a tournament doctor but was
accidentally given another product containing the banned substance"
Itīs a hard punishment for a carelessness.
