The South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) has confirmed that the hearing into the doping charges against Springbok Aphiwe Dyantyi has concluded.

SAIDS made the announcement on Wednesday after two days of testimonies by expert witnesses and closing arguments from both the athlete and prosecution. 

DYANTYI IS A 13-TIME SPRINGBOK

Dyantyi failed a drugs test after a sample was tested at a national camp in early July 2019, with three banned substances found in his system.

The hearing was initially heard over three days in September 2020 and adjourned to November 3, 2020. 

An independent panel will now deliberate on the evidence and render a decision within the next few weeks.

Dyantyi has played 13 Tests for the Springboks. He faces a four-year ban if found guilty.

Earlier this year, former Springbok and Sharks hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle was handed an eight-year ban after testing positive for banned anabolic substance Zeranol during an out-of-competition random test at Kings Park.
