French runner Zoubaa tests positive for EPO
font size    

French cross country champion Khalid Zoubaa has become the fourth middle-distance athlete in eight months to test positive for an illegal substance, local sports daily L'Equipe reported on Thursday.

Traces of the blood-boosting banned agent erythropoietin (EPO) were found in the 29-year-old's A sample following the military national championships in Pau on January 27.

One week ago, traces of EPO were found in a sample from French 1,500 meters record holder Hind Dehiba, who was arrested at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport last month after vials containing human growth hormone were found in her luggage.

Earlier, men's steeplechaser Nordine Gezzar and women's 1,500 meters runner Latifa Essarokh both failed drugs tests last July and August and were handed two-year suspensions from the sport.
