Trinidadian Michelle-Lee Ahye, Olympic and world 100m finalist, has been suspended for 2 years for failing to locate her doping control, said the Athletics Integrity Unit (IAU).
Ranked 6th at the Rio Olympics in 2016 on 100 and 200m, then again 6th at the London Worlds in 2017 on 100m, the world bronze medalist in the 4x100m relay in 2015 is suspended for two years until April 2021 and should miss the Tokyo Olympics.
Michelle-Lee Ahye (27), temporarily suspended since August 30, 2019, could not line up for the Doha Worlds in September. She can still appeal the decision.
High performance athletes are subject to strict daily whereabouts requirements to allow for unannounced doping controls. In the event of three failures in less than a year (either a missed check, or a forgotten or imprecise location), they risk a suspension of two years.
