Sergio Silva had won the elite men's race but was stripped of his title after testing positive for methylhexaneamine. The positive test resulted in a six-month ban for Silva, instead of the standard two-year suspension, as Silva was able to convince the ITU that he took the substance inadvertently.[7]
