Arizona State wrestling star Zahid Valencia was indefinitely suspended Thursday by the athletic department, as a report surfaced that he failed a drug test.
The failed drug test reportedly occurred Jan. 18 at an international meet in Rome as first reported by Pat Mineo via social media. A source told The Republic that Valenica tested positive for a recreational drug, not a performance enhancing drug.
ASU said in a statement: “Zahid Valencia has been suspended indefinitely from the ASU men’s wrestling team.”
1st positive: team physician may suspend the student from practice or play, if medically indicated. 2nd positive: suspended from at least 10% of the athletic contests 3rd positive: permanently suspended from the team
