Ongoing London Olympic doping tests catch Kazakh hurdler


MONACO (AP) — More than six years after the London Olympics, the IAAF has provisionally suspended an athlete from Kazakhstan who tested positive for two anabolic steroids in a re-analysis program.

The Athletics Integrity Unit says Natalya Ivoninskaya tested positive for turinabol and stanozolol in London. She was eliminated in the 100-meter hurdles heats.

The AIU says an International Olympic Committee disciplinary case is pending.

The IOC has continued re-testing samples from London in a program that initially included the 2008 Beijing Olympics. More than 100 doping offenses were found, most using more accurate testing for steroids.

The IOC said last year 12 cases involved Kazakhstan team members, including weightlifters and wrestlers.

Ivoninskaya, a 33-year-old two-time Olympian, set her personal record of 12.68 seconds in 2012.
