By using a forbidden performance enhancer, the Italian Anti-Doping Agency Filippo Magninit is punishing a four-year ban. The double world champion who sailed last year withdrew.
The same penalty was applied to the freestyle 4×100 meters with the Italian helicopter in 2015 in the bronze medal of the Michele Santucci championship. Santucci Magnifi was in contact with the nutritionist Guido Porcellini, who was suspected of spreading illicit drugs.
Magnini had just said about the decision,
I have not done anything wrong, this crisis is ridiculous.
At Magnini Grand Pool, he left in December 2017, he won the title of the World Championship in 2005 and 2007 at a speed of 100 meters and won eight European championships. He and Santucci were members of the Italian Fast Movement in 2015 with the bronze metal team.
