The picture above shows the new official standings for the adult female black belt division at the 2013 World Championship.

Gabi Garcia’s name was scraped both from the heavyweight division and the open class.

With that, the open class division remains without a champion and the heavyweight division shows no second place finisher.

The action was taken by the IBJJF following the USADA announcement that Gabi tested positive for Clomiphene after the 2013 Worlds.

The USADA accepted Gabi’s arguments and determined she had not fault or acted negligently in any way to  contribute to the result being positive.

Gabi was not suspended from the sport, but as an automatic sanction lost the results for the 2013 Worlds.

Here you can read the announcement from the USADA.
