Paris - Brazilian women's discus thrower Andressa de Morais has been
provisionally suspended over doping, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) said
The suspension follows a positive test for an anabolic steroid, the
AIU said in a statement ahead of the world championships starting in
Doha on September 27.
De Morais, 28, who is sixth in the world rankings, improved her South
American record to 65.98 metres at the Pan American Games in Lima on
August 6 and was on track for medal contention in Qatar.
