• Ex-Olympic champ Guenot banned for doping violations


    PARIS: Steeve Guenot, who won wrestling gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, was banned for a year by the French anti-doping agency (AFLD) on for missing doping controls. The 29-year-old six-time French national champion, who also won bronze in the 66kg category at the 2012 London Games, firstly failed to give details of his whereabouts, which resulted in a warning. The former security guard on the Paris regional transport network was also absent from his house for two early morning out-of-competition tests when he should have been present. The sanctions will end on July 30, 2015. Guenot, who has never tested positive for doping, will not appeal the decision the French Wrestling Federation said.
