US athlete who tests positive for steroid, banned for 2 years
- Categorized in: Mello FM News
US 400m athlete Debbie Dunn has been banned for two years after testing positive for a banned steroid at the US Olympic trials in June.
The US Anti-Doping Agency said Dunn was first alerted of the positive test result in July shortly, after the US Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon.
The 34-year-old athlete, didn't qualify to race an individual event in London but earned a place in the pool of 4x400m relay candidates.
She reportedly withdrew from the US team for London saying she didn't want her case to be a distraction as she awaited the final outcome.
Her two-year period of ineligibility began on August 1, 2012.
