Olympic champion Brianna Rollins banned for a year for anti-doping violations
Olympic gold medalist hurdler Brianna Rollins received a one-year suspension for repeated failures to disclose her whereabouts to anti-doping officials.
The arbitrators in charge of her case decisively concluded that Rollins had never deliberately tried to avoid testing and was in no way cheating, though the revelation is another big blow for American hurdling after Dawn Harper-Nelson, the 2008 Olympic champion in the 100-meter hurdles, tested positive for a banned diuretic and was suspended for three months earlier this year.
The 25-year-old, who won 100 metres hurdles gold in Rio last summer, will miss August's World Championships in London after being punished for three offences.
The United States Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) says Rollins failed to properly file her whereabouts information for drug testers.
In a statement released on Thursday, her attorneys said the computer program mix-up caused the ban as it listed her location on certain dates as both her home and a track meet where she was competing.
A three-person arbitration panel chaired by Barry A. Sanders, the former executive counsel of Latham & Watkins, that found Rollins guilty claimed the case was "difficult.because it involves the imposition of a serious penalty on a brilliant athlete who is not charged or suspected of using banned substances of any kind". As well as the eight out-of-competition tests, Rollins also passed all eight in-competition drug tests she took previous year. I have always been a supporter of Usada and their fight to keep our sport clean, and I will continue to do my part to prove that success can be achieved without shortcuts.
Under World Anti-Doping Agency rules, athletes can not miss three tests in a 12-month period. "I will accept the sanction and prepare myself for my return in 2018". The ruling noted she was, "travelling to have a parade in her honor in her home town in Florida and to celebrate "Brianna Rollins Day", and when she went to visit the White House to be feted by the President".
Athletes are required to be available for one hour each day for testing under global anti-doping regulations. She won the 100m hurdles at the 2013 world championships.
Rollins successfully submitted to eight in-competition and as many out-of-competition tests across 2016. "Only after the third Incident, when it was too late, did they help her fashion her response".
