Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies faces potential suspension after testing positive for a prohibited substance, Clenbuterol. Jantjies however, says he is innocent of intentionally taking the prohibited substance.
The 33-year-old failed to make the Springboks’ final World Cup team earlier this month.
Clenbuterol is a substance favoured by bodybuilders for its fat-burning effect, also offers relief for asthma sufferers.
Jantjies was told of the positive test from a urine sample he had furnished to the SA Institute of Drug Free Sport in June.
Jantjies says he’s determined to defend his innocence.
