NLEX Superstar Kiefer Ravena Suspended sa FIBA!
Every individual is so important to form a team. At sa pagkawala ni Kiefer sa NLEX (PBA Team) maraming nagsasabing durog na ang kanilang team.
Ang nasabing PBA player ay nag positibo sa drug test ayon sa World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). He is suspended to play for the Gilas Pilipinas in FIBA for 18 months (February 2018-August 2019).
"I regret taking this pre-workout drink without analyzing or taking extra time to research its ingredients," said Ravena. "DUST" is not illegal in the Philippines, according to Atty. Aga Francisco of the SBP. Indeed, "you can buy it over the counter anywhere." "So it's not illegal," Francisco added. "You take it, you buy it, you go to the gym." "It's over the counter, walang prescription, you can buy it," said SBP president Al Panlilio. "It's up to the player to assess whether it's banned or not. Ignorance is not an excuse."
Thus, FIBA admits that Ravena did an "honest mistake" in using the pre-workout drink. However, Gilas Pilipinas and NLEX will have the adjustment on their team in this unfortunate period.
