Hungary sprinter faces lifetime ban for second doping test
font size    

Hungary's top sprinter Gabor Dobos may face a lifetime ban if his B sample confirmed his guilt of doping following his failed dope test in 2000, the Hungarian Athletics Association (MASZ) said on Tuesday.

The runner failed a test on May 27 following a meet in Riga, Gusztav Rabold, president of MASZ, told MTI national news agency.

Hungarian public radio reported on its website that Dobos tested positive for abnormal levels of testosterone which is the same substance that both Tour de France champion Floyd Landis and America's Olympic and world 100m champion Justin Gatlin tested positive for.

Rabold said that although the results of Dobos' B-samples are not known yet, the 30-year-old sprinter will not be allowed to compete in the European Athletics Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden, which start on Monday.

Dobos already failed a drug test in 2000. A second positive sample would result in a lifetime ban.
