This is big news in our mind.
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 - https://www.letsrun.com/forum/f...ad=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.
