In 1996 Bevilacqua tested positive for the prohibited substances ephedrine and pseudoephedrine twice during the same month. The IAAF decided to put the case to arbitration and allowed Bevilaqua to compete at that year's Olympic Games where she cleared 1.99m to finish 4th. However, after the games it was decided that a doping offence had been committed and her Olympic result was annulled.
