Panel Upholds Sprinter’s Suspension

Date: June 7, 2008
Author: Lynn Zinser
QUOTE: Gatlin, a United States sprinter, was tested positive for testosterone in 2006, and he was trying to have the ban reduced so that he could defend his Olympic title in the 100 meters. The C.A.S. ruling, released on its Web site, did not include reasons for rejecting the appeal. It did, however, alter the starting date for Gatlin’s suspension, so he would not be eligible to compete until July 25, 2010.
