U.S. long jumper Tara Davis-Woodhall stripped of national title after positive cannabis test

Apr 25, 2023

U.S. long jumper Tara Davis-Woodhall was suspended for one month and stripped of her indoor national title after a positive test for THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced the penalties Tuesday, with the ban retroactive to the confirmation of a positive test from a sample collected Feb. 17. The sample was collected after Davis-Woodhall won the long jump title with a 6.99-meter jump at the indoor national championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In a statement, USADA wrote that Davis-Woodhall's sample "tested positive for 11-nor-9-carboxy-tetrahydrocannabinol (Carboxy-THC) ... above the urinary Decision Limit of 180 ng/mL/."

Davis-Woodhall has already served the suspension, which started March 21. USADA wrote that she was issued a reduced suspension at the minimum allowed by the rules because her use of cannabis was not competition-related, and she completed a substance abuse program.
