Michelle-Lee Ahye slapped with two year suspension

by January 14th, 2020

Trinidad and Tobago’s Olympic sprint finalist Michelle-lee Ahye, has been slapped with a two year suspension after following whereabouts rule violations.

Ahye, sixth in both the 100 and 200 metres at the 2016 Rio Olympics, and again sixth in the 100 metres at the 2017 London world championships, is suspended until April 2021, meaning she will miss this year’s Tokyo Olympics.

The 27-year-old will also see all her results from April 19-August 30, 2019, scrubbed from the record books, according to the Athletics Integrity Unitt – AIU.

She had been provisionally suspended on August 30, a ruling that saw her already miss last year’s world championships in Doha.

Elite athletes are bound to declare their location for potential visits by anti-doping officials. Any combination of three missed tests or filing failures within a 12-month period is considered a violation of Anti-Doping rules and carries an automatic two-year ban.
