Olympic hurdles champion banned for whereabouts mix-up
Reigning Olympic 100m hurdles champion Brianna Rollins has been handed a one-year suspension for failing to properly file whereabouts information for out- of-competition testing, the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) said Thursday.
Rollins will keep her Olympic gold medal since the US Anti-Doping Agency said her competitive results would only be annulled from September 27, the date of her third whereabouts failure.
USADA said in a statement that the 25-year-old athlete, who led a U.S. podium sweep of the 100m hurdles at the Rio Games, received three "whereabouts failures" over the course of 12 months, which constitutes a doping rule violation.
USADA said Rollins failed to provide whereabouts to the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) for being unavailable for testing on April 27, 2016.
