Four athletes found guilty of doping

Athletics South Africa (ASA) on Monday announced that its disciplinary 
committee has found four athletes from Harmony Gold Athletics Club in 
Pretoria guilty of doping.

The athletes Edward Kgosiemang, Gladys Lukhwareni, Merriam Mooki and Maxwell 
Zungu all tested positive for the banned substance, Norandrosterone in 2006 
and were in breach of the rules of the IAAF.

The tribunal, chaired by Monty Hacker, announced that the athletes have all 
been suspended for a period of two years.

Should the athletes wish to return to athletics competition after their 
two-year period of ineligibility, according to the IAAF rules, they must 
make themselves available for "out of competition" testing at any time 
during this period of ineligibility.

The athletes will be required to take a minimum of three "out of 
competition" tests, with at least four months between each test. A final 
test for the full range of prohibited substances will then be conducted 
immediately prior to the end of the suspension period.


Doping suspect in US team

ZACH Lund, reportedly facing suspension for a postitive drugs test, was 
named today for the United States skeleton at next month's Winter Olympics.

The US, lying second in the overall World Cup, can send three men to next 
month's Turin Games and nominated Lund, Eric Bernotas, and Kevin Ellis.

Lund, who relinquished the World Cup lead last week, has reportedly tested 
positive for finasteride, a drug used to combat baldness that has been 
banned as a substance that can mask the use of performance- enhancing drugs.

He has contended he declared the use of the drug on medical forms and has 
indicated he hopes to be cleared of doping in time to compete at Turin.

But in case any of the trio named is unable to compete, the US Bobsled and 
Skeleton Federation named two alternates, 2002 Olympian and 2003 world 
champion Chris Soule and world junior silver medallist Caleb Smith.

Three-time national champion Katie Uhlaender was the only woman named.

In 2002, the US swept the men's and women's gold medals in skeleton, and 
also took silver in the women's race.
