First Positive Drug Test At World Championships Comes From Morocco

Steeplechase finalist Jamel Chatbi withdrew before today’s final.

Chatbi withdrew from the final immediately after the positive test was revealed to the Morccan federation. The Morccan’s “A” sample tested positive for clenbuterol, a banned substance. In normal doses the drug is used to treat people suffering from asthma, but it is a stimulant and therefore banned during competition.
