IAAF Suspends 18 Athletes After Doping test
The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has suspended 18 artists for failing a doping test. The athletes took part in the 2005 as well as the 2007 world championships and have failed a doping retest.
The IAAF has not provided a list of the athletes who have been “provisionally suspended” although after some speculation that some British athletes failed the test, the IAAF has confirmed that no British athlete was suspended.
Most of the suspended athletes are said to have retired and none of them will compete at the World Championships in Beijing this year.
