Scottish Athletics has indicated Dry will appeal against the decision.

Scottish hammer thrower Mark Dry has been provisionally suspended after being charged with an anti-doping rule violation.

The double Commonwealth Games bronze medallist is under scrutiny for contravening IAAF anti-doping rule article 2.5 – tampering or attempted tampering with any part of doping control.

UK Anti-Doping has issued the provisional suspension and Scottish Athletics has indicated that Dry will seek a hearing and appeal against the decision.

The 31-year-old, who is currently taking legal advice, has been one of Britain's top three hammer throwers for the past decade and secured podium finishes in the 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games.

"There is a process to be followed and we have to await the outcome of that process," Scottish Athletics said.

"We have a duty of care for all our athletes and that's very much in our thoughts at this stage."
