She is an American flyweight boxer and she been a finalist in the U.S. National Tournament in 2013, 2014, & 2015. Fuch’s dream of representing her country at the 2021 Olympics almost went up in smoke because of unprotected sex, but luckily it was ultimately saved by science.
Now, Virginia Fuchs has been cleared by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency of a potential doping violation that was determined to be the result of a banned substance being passed to Fuchs during unprotected sex with her boyfriend.
On Thursday, USADA’s finding announced that Fuchs will remain eligible to qualify for the 2021 Olympic Games. Later, in a statement she said “I am very relieved that USADA understood how unique my case was in giving me a ‘no-fault’ (ruling) that allows me to resume my career immediately,” and added “I had no idea that I could become contaminated by way of intimate contact with another person. I want to thank USA Boxing for believing in me and supporting me throughout these past few difficult months.”
Travis Tygart, CEO of USADA, said Fuchs’ story should be used as an example of why changes need to be made to the World Anti-Doping Code. In an interview, she said that in early March that an out-of-competition urine test obtained in mid-February contained trace amounts of two banned substances.
However, Virginia Fuchs discovered that her boyfriend had purchased products including the two banned substances, and was taking them without her knowledge at a time when they engaged in unprotected sex.
