Nine athletes banned for doping offenses

TestFunda ,  01-Aug-12
A total of nine athletes, including Olympic bronze medalist Nataliya Tobias, have tested positive for "sophisticated doping" offenses as confirmed by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

Six of these athletes were caught using a new "biological passport" method, which helps build up a strong profile of each individual over a prolonged period of time.

The remaining three, which includes bronze medallist in the women’s 1500 meters at the Beijing Olympics four years ago, Tobias, were suspended after further analysis of samples they gave at the World Championships in Daegu last year.

The IAAF has said that they were collecting samples from various athletes in the build up to the Olympics and will conduct another 200 biological tests during the Games.
