In cae you don't know Ekaterina Kostetskaya, she attended HS in the US and also went to Texas State. Good over here in HS (2:05) and college (6th in NCAA in 2007 right behind Morgan Uceny), she was all the way down to 1:56 a year later in 2008.
In 2012 before the Olympics, I asked about her on this thread - http://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_read.php?thread=4723880 - and when it came out that her mom had run 3:54, I though to myself, "I hate to say it but doesn't that mean 100% her mom was a doper and she most likely is as well?"
I HATED THINKING THAT.
Knowing she also was dating hooker, it made me question him as well.
Now she comes out as a doper.
The IAAF banned her today for "use/attempted use of a prohibited substance/method” at the 2011 world championships.
Interesting they are banning people 3 years after the fact. Does anyone know the facts of the case?
Speaking of doping, they IAAF also banned a race-walker - not sure if this was related:
Also why hasn't the Mo Trafeh thing been anounced? His lawyer told me it was due more than a month ago.
Let us know what you know.
