IAAF Council Re-Affirms Its Call For 4 Year Doping Sanctions
The IAAF seeks a 4 year sanction for the following serious first-time doping violations:
F0B7 The presence/use/possession of anabolic steroids, hormones (including EPO) and amphetamine
F0B7 The presence/use/possession of all Prohibited Methods
F0B7 The refusal or failure to submit to doping control of otherwise evading of doping control
F0B7 Tampering, or attempting to tamper, with the doping control process
The above 4 year sanction may be reduced if the athlete, or other person, can prove “exceptional circumstances” in the case. However, exceptional circumstances will be considered to apply only in cases where the circumstances are truly exceptional and not in the vast majority of cases.
