IAAF 2018 IAAF vs Meseret Taye

In February 2018 the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the Ethiopian Athlete Meseret Taye after her sample tested positive for the prohibited substance testosterone. After notification a provisional suspension was ordered and the Athlete filed a statement in her defence.

The Athlete admitted the violation and provided various possible explanations for a reduced sanction.
The IAAF produced evidence that showed that the Athlete’s fiancée was the supplier of Testosterone to the Drug Store in question, he injected the substance to the Athlete, and he falsified receipts from the Store in order to conceal his involvement.

The IAAF Disciplinary Tribunal decides on 23 May 2018 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 15 November 2017.
