Hungarian sprinter gets lifetime ban for doping
font size    

Hungarian sprinter Gabor Dobos got a lifetime ban from the national athletics federation on Wednesday after he failed a doping test for the second time in May.

The sample he gave after a competition in Riga on May 27 contained performance-enhancing drugs. Back in 2000 he was given a two-year suspension by the International Association of Athletics Federation for his first positive doping test.

After returning to competition, he achieved his lifetime best result by finishing fifth in the 2003 World Indoor Championships in Birmingham.

The Hungarian federation also suspended three more athletes who failed doping tests at the national championships last summer. Discus thrower Roland Varga, javelin thrower Gergely Horvath and sprinter Geza Pauer were banned from all competitions for two years.
