ISTANBUL (AA) – British Olympic sprinter and European indoor gold medalist Nigel Levine has been banned from sports for four years after failing a drug test.
“British sprinter Nigel Levine has been suspended from all sport for a period of four years following an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV), ” watchdog UK Anti-Doping said in a statement late Tuesday.
“Levine tested positive for the presence of the prohibited substance clenbuterol, an Anabolic Agent, following an Out-of-Competition test on 24 November 2017, ” it added.
Last December the European 4x400m relay gold medalist had been provisionally suspended.
He was also in Britain's 4x400m relay team at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
