The Badminton World Federation (BWF) can confirm current world No.5 women’s singles player Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand was found to be in violation of the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations earlier this year.
 
The Ethics Hearing Panel determined Ms. Ratchanok Intanon committed an anti-doping rule violation, but as the athlete was able to demonstrate that her adverse analytical finding (AAF) was related to the ingestion of meat contaminated with clenbuterol, she was found to bear no fault or negligence for the violation, and thus no period of ineligibility has been imposed on her. 
 
BWF duly notes the reasoned decision of the BWF Ethics Hearing Panel and its findings. See the reasoned decision linked here, dated 04 October 2019
