In August 2013 Van Snick won a bronze medal at the World Championships in Rio de Janeiro. On 14 October 2013 it was announced that Van Snick had tested positive for cocaine in Rio. Van Snick maintains her innocence. On 29 October 2013 it was announced that a hair analysis that Van Snick commissioned with the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven's toxicology lab proved negative for habitual cocaine use. Toxicological research proved the presence of 2,3 picogram cocaine per milligram in the hair strain for the period 10 August to 10 October 2013, which is 200 times less than the amount in a strain for a habitual user, and a complete absence of cocaine in the part of the strain dating before 10 August. However, on 30 November 2013 it was announced that the official counterexpertise also showed positive for cocaine. On 3 January 2014, she was banned by the IJF for a period of two years. Van Snick announced she will appeal the ban with the CAS. On July 4, 2014, the CAS decided that Van Snick's appeal would be partially upheld. The CAS found that the most likely explanation for the presence of cocaine was sabotage by a third party and consequently annulled the two-year ban. The CAS acknowledged the existence of an anti-doping rule violation, but declared that Van Snick was not to blame. As the positive test was taken in competition her results obtained during the Judo World Championships in Rio de Janeiro 2013 remain annulled in accordance with article 9 of the World Anti-Doping Code.
