I know, I know, I’m late to the party on this news, but according to DSTRYRsg, jiu jitsu competitor Braulio Estima stripped of his title as 2014 Worlds Champion, and has been banned from competing for 2 years, after DMAA or methylhexanamine was found in his system after said tournament.
According to the post, DMAA can be found in a number of energy drinks and pre-workout supplements, which sucks if Estima accidentally ingested the substance, but a banned substance is a banned substance: you should definitely be careful of what you are putting into your body if you know you are competing in a tournament that has a list of stuff that’s not allowed in your system. Personally I think 2 years is a bit harsh, but I do agree with the title strip and a suspension period. I think a year would have been sufficient, considering the nature of the substance, coupled with the face that jiu jitsu is really a year-round sport and a number of important tournaments can go by within that period of time.
